Worksop Town vs Chester FC - Match Diagnosis

Chester continue their annoying habit of requiring two match previews for every cup tie they play tonight, as they take on Worksop in one of the most unnecessary games they'll ever play.

Having wound up drawing from the most impossible of positions on Saturday, The Blues have been punished by having to travel to Worksop this evening. They'll also have to play football again.

With £4,000 up for grabs, the game is likely to be fiercely contested with Chester boss Neil Young quick to point out the value of the competition to a fan owned club.

"We need to get as far in this trophy as possible and boost the funds, so we can continue to not buy players like Ben Mills," nodded Young.  "Same with the Cheshire Senior Cup - the multipack bag of crisps that you win for coming out of that tournament victorious could come in very handy by the end of the season."

The Chester manager was so angry following Saturday's draw that he is reportedly still raging several days later.

"We fully expect Youngy to be throwing tea-cups in the pre-match teamtalk, which is pretty novel like," confirmed assistant manager Gary Jones.  "A defeat tonight and he'll probably drive the team bus away before anyone's got on it.   Make 'em all walk back.  It'd be Neil's first coach-jacking since Nantwich last year."

Worksop is known as The Gateway To The Dukeries, due to the number of ducal residences in the area - a subject which interests Young.

"I've been informally calling myself 'The Duke' for many years now," confirmed the King of the Seals."It'd be great to buy a place around here and make it official."

The victors will enjoy a home tie against King's Lynn in the next round, with Chester Exiles hoping that if it gets that far, The Seals will land themselves yet another replay.

"Do you think there'll ever be a Queen Lynn?" mused Young. "I can't see it happening, to be honest."
