Bishop's Stortford FC vs Chester FC - Match Gather

Chester FC travel to Bishop's Stortford tomorrow, as they continue to use this season as an exercise in discovering places of whose existence they were previously unaware.

"At best guess, I'd have said that a Bishop's Stortford was maybe some kind of religious hat," shrugged Blues manager Neil Young when asked what he knows about the opposition.

Luke Denson is expected to feature for the Seals, but, following his midweek red card against Halifax, Michael Powell will not travel, with Young having sent him to his room to think about what he's done.

Striker Tony Gray will seek to open his account for the Blues, with Young dismissing reports that he is reluctant to play the former Southport man in the same team as Scott Brown.

"Look, I saw some fashion show on TV that said grey and brown should never be seen together, and I got confused for a moment," explained The Blue Chief.  "It's all sorted now, and everyone's in contention, provided that they haven't recently attempted a headbutt in a massively important fixture.

Bishop's Stortford currently reside 15th in the league table, though this is quite some achievement when one considers that their players are only allowed to move diagonally.

Rod Stringer is manager of The Bishops.

"Coincidentally, I took my fishing pole to the Rod Stringer the other day," said Chester winger and keen fisherman Robbie Booth.  "Needed a new line on it."

The hosts had been plying their trade in the Conference South until 2011, at which stage they were transferred to the Conference North.

"Hassle, basically," grumbled Young.  "Don't need to be trippin' south, do we?  If they were gonna play in this division, they could have at least had the decency to move to Lincolnshire like all the other clubs we seem to play these days."

Brackley Town remain top of the tree for the time being, but are expected to surrender this position in the same week in which it is tradtional for the X Factor's annual novelty act to get voted off.

Matty McGinn misses the game with a dead leg, Wes Baynes is out following a nasty Chinese burn and Paul Linwood is doubtful having had his head flushed in a toilet.
