THE big games continue to come thick and fast for Chester.

Another team in contention for the National League North play-offs will provide the opposition tomorrow, with Curzon Ashton paying a visit to the Leap76 Stadium.

The Blues head into the contest on the back of a 2-2 draw at second-placed Scunthorpe United last time out and boss Calum McIntyre told Chester FC TV: “Our record against those sides in those play-off positions continues. We have another massive game.

“I think Curzon are a fantastic team, fantastic manager that, obviously, I know really well. Always raise their game against us and I think they’re quite rightly in that play-off conversation and what they’ve done in recent years, have cemented themselves right the way in the top half and around those play-off positions.

“Would be very, very surprised if they’re not in the top-seven come the end of the season. So, only the best version will be enough to get us where we want to be in that play-off picture.”

Goals from Ben Tollitt and George Glendon (pictured above) twice had the Blues ahead at Scunthorpe and McIntyre says four more wins will secure a top-seven berth.

He added: “We’ve gone through the 60-point mark. We are, probably, 10-to-12 points away from being in those play-offs.”

Leaders Tamworth go to Scarborough Athletic tomorrow and Scunthorpe visit bottom side Bishop’s Stortford.

Other fixtures: Banbury v Southport; Blyth v King’s Lynn; Farsley Celtic v Alfreton; Gloucester v Boston; Hereford v Chorley; Rushall Olympic v Buxton; South Shields v Brackley; Spennymoor v Darlington.
