Tomorrow will see second placed Chorley visit Third place Chester fc at the Exacta stadium as both teams look to keep pace with Northwhich Victoria who lead the way at the top of the Evo-stik premier.
For both sets of fans this game take on significant meaning as both teams were promoted from the evo-stik first division north last season and a bit of ill-feeling runs between the two sets of fans, which included the violent scenes that took place before and after Chester’s visit to Victory Park last season. Both clubs will be hoping for no more trouble and for the games to pass off without any incident this season.
If the table was going on as home form then Chester will top the table unbeaten at home with 4 wins and 1 draw out of 5 home scoring 18 times and conceding 3 with a total of 13 points out of 15. Chorley sit second in this table on the same points but having played one more game at home this season. They also sit 2nd on the away table 3 points behind Northwhich Victoria.
Both teams defences will most likely come out on top tomorrow with Chester not conceding in 545 minutes since there lose to Nantwhich in August and the Ross has only been beaten 6 times in the Chorley goal. So don’t be to surprised if the game was to end in a draw.
