Chester will be full of confidence when they take on Kendal Town on Wednesday evening, having chalked up an impressive three consecutive wins. The early season defensive frailties appear to be a thing of the past, coinciding with the moon being "in the seventh house" and the return of Michael Taylor to the starting 11.
"Michael has impressed in training recently. His return is completely unrelated to the fact that Christian Smith isn't really a defender" said manager Neil Young.
"It's important that we try players out in certain positions to see if they can do a job. Now we know about the abilities of Christian in that position, we're going to take a look at Joe Ormrod in the sweeper role in the cup games and also experiment by asking John Danby to play a continental 'libero' role."
Clark Powell of The City Fans United added that Mark Reed has been asked if he can do a job cutting the oranges at half time for Wednesday's home game, to ensure backup should the caterers pull out. Meanwhile, Reed has been working hard to create first team opportunities for himself by kicking Matty McNeil in the knees when he's not looking and challenging Chris Simm with riddles on Saturday mornings in an attempt to confuse him enough that he turns up late again.
Young is expected to name an unchanged side on Wednesday, but insists that he will continue to punish latecomers.
"People have to remember that we pay these guys. Turning up late is unacceptable" said Young, who is also a manager at Merseyrail, for goodness' sake.
In the interests of continuity, Chief Executive Pat McCluskey has weirdly asked that all staff wear the same underwear as the previous home game, washed or not, and Rob Clegg will be spilling water on himself again.
