Chester visit Nethermoor on Saturday in the Vanarama National League as Adam Lockwood’s Lions look to extend their home unbeaten run to six matches. 

The Blues confirmed the appointment of Chris Iwelumo as assistant manager earlier in the week following a solid month in November with three draws and two wins.

Meanwhile the Lions have struggled on the road this season but have been impressive at Nethermoor, particularly of late, including wins over Boreham Wood, Torquay United, Southport and York City respectively and a draw against Gateshead.

Reflecting on Tuesday’s match at York Lions boss Adam Lockwood was happy with the result “It is a good point, I knew it would be a difficult game coming here.”

However the performance did not reach the levels he feels the squad are capable of “I am disappointed, we need to be a lot better.”

When Chester last visited Nethermoor on Easter Monday a pulsating 3-3 draw was played out including a late strike from former Lions loanee Emile Sinclair.

The fixture will always be remembered for a late equaliser from Tom Shaw for the side from Cheshire who had pulled the game back to 2-2 just 11 minutes earlier.

Ahead of the fixture Lockwood thinks Chester will pose a different test to recent opponents “It’s another difficult test, they’re all difficult tests in this league.”

“I have always said if we aren’t right ourselves then we are in for a tough afternoon.”
