CALUM MCINTYRE is aiming high as the season reaches its hectic point.

His Chester side are within sight of the National League North play-off spots ahead of tomorrow’s big clash at home to high-flying Tamworth.

Tamworth sit second in the table and they will return to top spot if they gain the three points at the Deva Stadium.

After Tuesday’s 1-0 home win over Brackley Town moved Chester up to eighth place in the table, Blues’ boss McIntyre told Chester FC TV: “I want us to be a side that are in the play-off picture.

“I don’t think we’re there yet to be a side right at the top of the division. I think we can beat those teams on our day and that stands us in good stead for a play-off situation, but when you’re playing a team like Tamworth, loads of momentum coming up from the division below, had a really good start, really impressive side.

“Like the way they play, difficult to beat. It’s an opportunity for us to show that we should be in that... second to seventh and competing there.”

The Blues are level on points with Chorley, who occupy the final play-off berth, and victory tomorrow will see the Blues climb into the top-seven.

A place in the play-off positions is also the target for 11th-placed Scarborough Athletic tomorrow as they visit Warrington Town.

The other National League North contest sees Banbury United at home to Darlington in a key meeting towards the foot of the standings.
