Chester FC v North Ferriby
Ferriby travel to Chester looking to extend their four match unbeaten run. Chester won promotion last season and are many people's favourites for promotion this season. They have had a similar start to the season as the Ferriby. It will be the first time the teams have met.
John Anderson's side will be confident given their current form but Chester will provide a stiff challenge. Anderson commented, "I'm quite pleased with the start we have made. It can often take a few games for a team to settle down and find their form. There should be a large crowd and a good atmosphere at Chester and I'm sure he players will respond to that. Chester had a heavy defeat on Monday and will be looking to bounce back fro that."
Monday's goalless draw at Worksop was the Villagers' second successive clean sheet. Ferriby were a little below par and it was probably a fair result. Chris Bolder may be out for a couple more weeks with an ankle ligament injury but Ben Morley may be fit to return to the squad following a damaged Achilles tendon. Otherwise, Anderson should have a full squad to choose from.
Possible Ferriby Squad: Steve Wilson, Ben Morley, James Williams, Kevin Larvin, Paul Foot, Nathan Peat, Mark Greaves, Chris Bolder, Russell Fry , Gary Bradshaw, Wayne Brooksby, John Leonard, Mathew Stirland, Dan Wright, Phil Jackman
