COMETH the hour, cometh the captain!

Chester skipper George Glendon once again came up with the goods as the Blues battled to a 2-0 home success over Bishop’s Stortford.

Glendon grabbed his ninth goal of the campaign to open the scoring on 54 minutes at the Leap76 Stadium, while Christian Norton grabbed the second deep into stoppage time.

This win moves the Blues up to fourth in the National League North table and boss Calum McIntyre told Chester FC TV: “A fairly consistent factor is, in the big games when we’ve needed big goals, George Glendon particularly - and especially this season - has stepped up and scored.

“I thought it was a great moment for Christian Norton to score his first senior goal and, hopefully, the first of many.

“So, really pleased, but it’s about Tuesday now and a very different test (at Chorley).”

A frozen pitch meant the big game between second-placed Scunthorpe United and Tamworth had to be postponed.

Blyth Spartans are just two points off the play-offs following their 1-0 win at Gloucester, while the other two matches to survive the cold snap finished in stalemates.

Hereford and King’s Lynn played out a 2-2 encounter, while it finished 1-1 between Scarborough Athletic and Peterborough Sports.
