City get ready for Stevenage test

Chester are in action tomorrow as they look to get their second successive win for the first time in over 90 games, but they'll have to beat a Stevenage side that are enjoying their BSP season so far.

Stevenage Borough have won their last 4 games, and have only been beaten once this campaign, losing at leaders Oxford United, so this will obviously be a massive test, and will show far Chester have come since Mick Wadsworth declared that his men were now match fit.

Borough are sitting third in the table on 18 points, a mere 34 points ahead of Chester's tally in the table, and came from 2-0 down at Mansfield to win 3-2, and have also seen off Eastbourne, Histon, and Rushden & Diamonds in the last 4 games.

So, a difficult game ahead for the Blues, hopefully they can build on the confidence from 4 matches in the last 5 where they have taken some kind of result, but it's certainly going to need everyone on top form if they are to make it 5 in 6.

As far as the team news is concerned, Tim Ryan, who is only 1 match away from a first suspension of the season, may still continue at left back, bit should surely be shifted to centre half, whilst Michael Lea should operate from the left, and Chris Lynch will play alongside Shaun Kelly in the middle of defence.

It's likely to be an unchanged line up in the middle, with Ben Wilkinson, Adam Kay, Kevin Roberts, and Neil Ashton being the four expected to start, although Anthony Barry could feature in there potentially, and up front Nick Chadwick will be hoping to add to his four goal tally so far, alongside Gregg Blundell, who will be looking to score in his third successive game.

The crowd will more than likely head back over the 1000 mark tomorrow with a few from Stevenage expected thanks to their current run.

Fingers crossed the Blues pick up the points.
