After three successive wins Chester FC entertain Blyth Spartans to the Deva stadium knowing another victory could see them claim second place.

Chester have risen to fifth in the table following a run which has propelled them up the National League North table.

Their latest scalp was Scarborough Athletic on Tuesday evening who surrendered a 26-game unbeaten record at home which stretched for over a year.

Seals boss Calum McIntyre says he is not bothered about the league position just yet, telling Cheshire Live: “For us it is about points’ targets, and we are on course to hit another one over the six games if we maintain this level of form.

“It is nice for the supporters and some people might read into it but I don’t. For me, let’s see where we are at when we have played everyone and then let’s see when there is context to the result.”

Kurt Willoughby will be the key man for Chester FC, the 25 year old has averaged a goal every two games so far this season and has been on the score sheet in Chester’s last three fixtures.

Blyth will provide a stern test for the blues though having only lost once in their last five outings and held current league leaders Brackley Town to a 1-1 draw midweek.

Callum McIntyre says good support can play a key role. Speaking to Cheshire Live he said: “I’m hoping for a big crowd. You have seen the crowds are starting to creep up. I thought the Leamington crowd was really good, as was the crowd against Oldham. Also, the FA Trophy crowd was up on what it has been historically. How good would it be to have the Deva packed and win the game?”

The game kicks off at the Deva stadium at 19:45.
