CHESTER reach the midway point of their National League North season with today’s big clash at home to Warrington Town.

The Blues go into the match unbeaten in their last seven games, although they were made to reflect on missed chances in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Blyth Spartans.

Declan Weeks and Harrison Burke’s fine volley made sure of a point for Chester to keep them in the play-off positions.

Boss Calum McIntyre declared himself “excited” for the Boxing Day meeting at home to Warrington Town, who are managed by ex-Chester striker Mark Beesley.

“Very good team. A club we respect,” he told Chester FC TV.

“A team we respect, that have been rightfully promoted and have come so close for so many years out of coming out of that Northern Premier League and a fixture that, no doubt, they’re looking forward to.

“But we are. The chance to be at home on Boxing Day for the first time in a while will be great for our supporters.”
