PREVIEW | Chester vs AFC Fylde

    The festive matches are coming thick and fast, and next up at the Deva the Blues face high flying AFC Fylde.

    Jim Bentley’s side sit second in the table, but missed the chance to go top on Boxing Day as they were beaten at home to Chorley while leaders Brackley Town were not in action. Ben Tollitt’s second half goal wasn’t enough for the Coasters, who had conceded first half goals to Scott Leather and Ollie Shenton.

    The Blues meanwhile will be looking to build on their first away victory of the season. Steve Watson marked his first game as Manager with an impressive 3-1 win over AFC Telford.

    James Hardy got on the scoresheet on his return from injury, and that was accompanied by an Anthony Dudley pen and a fantastic Darren Stephenson strike. Carl Baker’s late goal was just a consolation at the end of an impressive Chester FC performance.
