MATCH PREVIEW | Bradford (PA) vs Chester

Part two of three of a busy seven days on the road for Chester takes them to Bradford (Park Avenue) this weekend.

Tuesday’s draw saw Calum McIntyre’s side take the lead and create a plethora of chances, but an unfortunate late own goal saw them take just a point back to Cheshire.

It followed two wins by the odd goal on the bounce though, as the Blues have started to strengthen their top seven position once again.

Bradford (PA) have slipped into the relegation zone following four defeats in their last five. Kurt Willoughby was the difference in the reverse fixture at the Deva, his goal from Harry Tyrer’s assist proving decisive.

Kick off on Saturday afternoon is 3pm.
