Ryan gets ready to rally the troops!

In a week where Chester City fans have yet again been put through the pain of another defeat, and another sacking of a manager – the 11th in 7 years, and the club heading for a nightmare relegation season – the 3rd in the last decade, the players get ready for tomorrow’s match at Conference newcomers Hayes & Yeading.

Tim Ryan is in place as caretaker manager for tomorrow, and we will see just what impact he can have on the team, which under Mick Wadsworth achieved only 2 wins during his 94 day reign, and most of that was in the summer outside of Chester’s notorious start to this season.
City will be even more depleted for tomorrow’s game, as Ryan himself serves a suspension for accruing 5 yellow cards so soon in the season. Rhys Meynell could have stepped in to cover, but he suffered ankle ligament damage in his brief spell on the pitch against Forest Green the other night.
City are going to be stretched defensively of course, having seen Chris Lynch return to Burnley following the moment in the Wrexham derby where he sustained cruciate ligament damage and consequently missed the rest of the season.

Chester need goals and tomorrow they are likely to have Gregg Blundell alongside Nick Chadwick, but it’s in midfield where problems lie, as City lack creativity, something they have missed since the days of Alex Smith.

Let’s hope for a win tomorrow as Chester’s immediate target must be to get into single minus figures, something they are currently 5 points off doing.

Come on you blues!!
