IT’S going to take Calum McIntyre a bit more time to get the anger out of his system.

Chester boss McIntyre, who is preparing for tomorrow’s big National League North play-off showdown at home to Scarborough Athletic, is still seething following last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Banbury.

This was followed by a further 1-1 draw in midweek at Peterborough Sports and following that match, McIntyre told Chester FC TV: “There’s positives from tonight’s game.

“If you put the Saturday-Tuesday together, won’t be happy with the two points. I’m not going to insult anyone’s intelligence.

“If you choose to look at tonight in isolation of what it represents from our group, you’ve got to be pleased moving forwards.”

The Blues’ younger contingent did provide a positive and McIntyre added: “Look at the age of our (team) - 22, 22, 21-year-old centre halves.

“Twenty-year-old Ollie Heywood playing at right wing back. Really young Charlie Caton (pictured above).

“A young group... but I thought they were a credit to themselves and that’s what I’m going to choose to take from tonight’s game.”

There are home comforts in store for the two clubs aiming for the title.

Tamworth, who are nine points clear at the top, take on Farsley Celtic, while second-placed Scunthorpe United come up against Curzon Ashton.

Other fixtures: Banbury v Rushall Olympic; Blyth v Buxton; Darlington v Alfreton; Gloucester v South Shields; Southport v Brackley; Warrington v Boston.
