Chester FC vs Gainsborough Trinity - Match Blink

Chester welcome Gainsborough Trinity to the Exacta Stadium tonight with the visitors due a battering for failing at the weekend to prevent Wrexham achieving a trip to Wembley.

Whilst the truth is probably that Gainsborough fought hard over the two legs of the FA Trophy seni-final against higher league opposition and came within one goal of earning extra time, the fact is that we've now all got to hear about how Wrexham are off to see the tiny floodlights of the nation's leading football stadium.

"Now we've gotta act like it's not impressive that they've got there, and like we wouldn't love the chance to be there ourselves," grimaced Harry Mac regular Graham Silkspindle.

The Blues go into the game able to open up a 19 point gap over second place Guiseley, and manager Neil Young reckons the game is one of the most important of the season.

"If we win tonight, it tips our lead over from a 'silly' 16 points to a 'ridiculous' 19," explained Young. "That's an important difference. If we reach 'ridiculous' territory, Guiseley may throw in the towel."

Fans are eager to see whether or not Young rings the changes again. The Chief Seal handed a surprise start to fans' favourite Iain Howard at the weekend, and supporters are primed to throw a strop if the plasterer has to sit down again tonight.

"First the away kit, now Iain Howard gets dropped. Fans' club my eye," pre-typed one Deva Chatter with his hand hovering over the enter key in anticipation of the team sheets.

The game sees Chester's last outing for ten days, with Blues enjoying their 45th free Saturday of the season at the weekend - a number only outstripped by Halifax. But not intentionally.
