MATCH PREVIEW | Chester vs Blyth Spartans

    The Blues will be looking to bounce back this evening from Saturday’s defeat at Bradford Park Avenue, with Blyth Spartans making the journey from the North East.

    A 2-0 defeat was perhaps a harsh scoreline on the weekend, with a controversial early goal putting the hosts in a good position to earn three points. Injury headaches have made life difficult for Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley – and the situation isn’t getting any easier. They could be without several key players once again this evening.

    Nevertheless, a strong home record this season always brings confidence when the Blues compete at the Swansway Chester Stadium. With nine wins and just two defeats from 15 matches, the Deva is a real fortress in the National League North this term.

    They will need it to be a fortress again this evening. Blyth Spartans will leapfrog Chester with a win tonight – and edge ever closer to the Play-Off hunt. On the flip side, a home success tonight narrows the gap for the boys in blue to just one point off the top seven.

    It promises to be a cracker. Come on you Blues!
