Chester's side is peppered with recent County players in Craig Hobson, Sean McConville and Kieran Charnock. They also have our old Youth player John Disney and trialist Matthew Brown on their books. Since joining the Bumpers Lane side McConville has not missed a game, and Chester have three other ever present men.
THE COUNTY SIDE
|Lee Stevenson -likely to feature tonight at Abbey Hey !|
The game sees County back to underdog status but Chester's away records isn't the best. If we can put on one of our good attacking performances the win should be achievable. At least we can hope for a draw and a few drinks in Chester with a match thrown in has never been much of a chore.
