MATCH PREVIEW | Chester vs Blyth Spartans
The Blues will look to build on their impressive away form as Blyth Spartans visit the Deva to kick off December.
Last Tuesday’s win at Farsley Celtic was followed up by another huge victory on the road, a dominant win against play-off rivals Scarborough Athletic – which ended their 26-game unbeaten home run which had spanned over one year.
The win cut the gap to the top of the table to just four points, and Calum McIntyre’s side could climb as high as second with a victory in this fixture.
Blyth were a side who helped reduce the deficit at the top on Saturday, as a late Toby Lees goal denied leaders Brackley Town all three points at Croft Park.
Kick off on Friday night is 7.45pm.
