READ | Liam Edwards speaks to The Cestrian Programme

Chester FC centre back Liam Edwards has been speaking to The Cestrian Programme ahead of Friday’s game against Blyth Spartans.

The Blues come into this one following back-to-back away wins, the second of which ended Scarborough’s impressive one-year unbeaten home run.

Liam said: “It was a big win on Saturday.

“We knew it was going to be a tough test going there with them unbeaten at home in a year, but we’re a team that believe in ourselves.

“Even at the start of the season when the results weren’t quite there, we knew our performances were good and our luck will change – and it has.”

The Blues have already accumulated more away points this season so far than they did in the entirety of last term.

Calum McIntyre’s men have lost just once on the road this term and sit atop the away league table in the National League North.

“It’s been about concentrating on ourselves,” said the 26-year-old Edwards.

“We know what we’ve got in our changing room, and not many can match it at this level.

“We’ve got depth. It’s a demanding league with the schedule so when we’ve got injuries we know that players that are stepping in are ready and more than capable for the level.

“Players coming in can do the job.”

Arriving from Bolton in the summer, it was a frustrating start to life at the Deva for Edwards.

Injuries restricted him to just one appearance in August, but he’s now played in eight of the last nine league games and is a rock at the heart of the Blues defence.

“No one wants to sit on the sidelines – especially when we’ve got the team we have.

“It was tough start for me, particularly joining the club as a new player, you want to hit the ground running.

“I worked hard to get back and now I’m in the team and we’re winning it feels good.”
