A FOUR-MIDABLE showing has boosted Chester’s hopes of claiming a National League North play-off spot.

While they remain outside the top-seven, the Blues boosted their hopes with a 4-1 win away to Buxton, which sets them up nicely for tomorrow’s huge encounter at home to seventh-placed Alfreton Town.

Goals from Declan Weeks, Harrison Burke, Adam Thomas and Tom Peers sealed a crucial three points for Calum McIntyre’s men.

McIntyre told Chester FC TV: “A win, important win, much-needed win. Very, very pleased.

“We’ve needed to find the back of the net. To draw four blanks has been frustrating, it’s been frustrating for everyone... so did feel like if we’d get one, we’d score multiple goals and we have today.”

Tamworth’s 3-0 win over Bishop’s Stortford saw them crowned as league champions, as second-placed Scunthorpe were held to a goalless draw by King’s Lynn.
