NLN PREVIEW | Chester vs Leamington

    After a fantastic start to the National League North season on Tuesday night, Bern and Jonno’s side will look to make it six points from six tomorrow against Leamington.

    The Blues have had a positive start to the new campaign, with an FA Cup win at Worksop last weekend before a second victory in 15 years at Kidderminster on Tuesday night.

    Goals from Danny Elliott and Declan Weeks gave us a 2-1 win, with both sides ending up with ten men. Paddy Lacey was given a straight red card for his challenge in the second half – but his suspension doesn’t start until Tuesday; so he is eligible for tomorrow’s game.

    Chester are still yet to beat Leamington in four meetings over the past two seasons. Both sides played out a six-goal thriller at the Deva last year, with Matty Waters’ free kick rescuing the Blues a point.

    The Brakes have started with two home defeats this term, being knocked out the FA Cup last weekend by Banbury United before a 4-0 thumping against one of the promotion favourites, Boston United, in midweek.

    Kick off tomorrow is 3pm!
