MATCH PREVIEW | Banbury United vs Chester

    With three wins in a row now under their belt, the Blues will look to extend their impressive run with a midweek trip to Banbury.

    A productive seven days saw Calum McIntyre’s men pick up nine points from nine, backing up their impressive away wins at Boston and Spennymoor with a gutsy victory over Bradford (PA) on Saturday at the Deva.

    Kurt Willoughby was the man of the moment up top once again, the quickest to react to score the winner, his 12th of the season in all competitions.

    Banbury, who were promoted to this division last term, made a flying start to the new season. However, they have failed to win in each of their last seven league fixtures. Nevertheless, the Puritans can cut the gap to the Blues to just one point with victory in this encounter.

    Kick off on Tuesday evening is 7.45pm.
