Chester FC vs Corby Town - Match Investigate

Chester welcome Corby Town to the Exacta Stadium tonight, with the Jestrian keen to avoid obvious jokes about trouser presses.

The Blues enter the match having returned to the top of the table over the weekend, and manager Neil Young has been enjoying being league leaders once more.

"Having just gone full time, and with the league campaign going so well, I treated myself to a cracking packed lunch yesterday," enthused the Seal Senator.  "Got myself in some posh crackers and some spreadable cheese, and wolfed 'em good in my office.  Top of the league, having some Laughing Cow."

Following a goal rout at the weekend, Ben Mills may have to wait for his first start as a permanent Chester player.

"Youngy has indicated that I'm going to have to work hard to get back into the team," revealed Mills.  "It's gonna mean a lot of bench time, so I've invested in Nintendo DS and that Brain Training game - I'm gonna be a bona fide genius by Christmas."

From having only two forwards a few weeks back, Chester now have five on the books.  In a recent interview, Young has stated that some players need to be moved on in order to balance the books, and this may mean one or two strikers being shown the door.

"We have to fill in the financial shortfall caused by the Mills transfer, and at some point I'm probably going to want to sign another left winger, too," mused Young.

Amongst the visitors' more notable former players is Mark Lawrenson, a man who once commented that Chester is not a footballing city.

"I can't believe he said that," fumed one Deva Chatter.  "I mean, he's right.  He's dead right - the city has a population of over 100,000 and we can't even get 3% of that on a regular basis.  In fact, half the fanbase seems to come from Deeside and surrounding areas.  But he still shouldn't have said it - rude is what it is."

Following the game, fans have been asked to stick some covers on the pitch.  Also, the covers cost a bit when the club bought them a couple of years ago, so if you could throw a couple of quid towards their purchase, that'd be appreciated.
