CALUM MCINTYRE has tipped Scunthorpe United to go on and win the National League North title after his Chester side continued their brilliant run of form.

The Blues made it six wins from seven courtesy of their 2-0 triumph at the Leap76 Stadium, with Charlie Caton and Elliott Whitehouse (pictured above) on the scoresheet.

This followed Chester’s excellent 2-0 success at fifth tier Hartlepool in the FA Cup and the Blues are now just two points adrift of the play-off positions.

Boss McIntyre told Chester FC TV: “They’ll win the league. There’s no debate about that and us and a couple of sides will be able to say we’ve got some points, so it’s three Brucie bonus points.

“So, yeah, it caps a really good week.

“It means in the last six games we’ve hit our points target and, maybe, we’re starting to get some momentum.

“So, big congratulations to the players.

“Delighted for the club. Delighted for the supporters and it makes for a nice Saturday evening.”

The match marked the return of striker Tom Peers to Chester following his departure from Macclesfield.

The 27-year-old has penned a contract until the end of the 2024/25 season, returning to the club he made his senior debut for almost 10 years ago.

Tamworth remain at the top of the standings after their 1-0 win at Blyth Spartans, while South Shields defeated King’s Lynn Town 2-0 to climb into second.

It’s the second time the tie has been called off and it was now been switched to mid-Wales next Saturday.
