With that FA Cup defeat (just about) out of the system, thoughts have now turned to Chester FC's trip to York City.

And the Blues should be confident for Saturday's Bootham Crescent clash. After all, they are on a run of seven unbeaten league games and clean sheets. Impressive stuff.

York, in contrast, are in shocking form. They have gone 10 matches without a win in all competitions and on Monday were dumped out of the FA Cup by Curzon Ashton.

That was new manager Gary Mills' first game back in charge of the club after his desperately disappointing stint at Wrexham.

But Chester boss Jon McCarthy believes Mills – a fellow former Minsterman favourite – will give the strugglers a boost.

"They will get that lift that often happens when you get a new manager," said McCarthy.

"I've never made any secret of it, I rate Gary Mills. Why wouldn't I? He will be disappointed with how things went at Wrexham and want to put things right."

No room for sentiment

McCarthy has a lot of time for York. We shouldn't be surprised.

He scored 38 goals in 233 games for the Minstermen between 1990 and 1995. It was the club that kick-started his career.

But come 3pm on Saturday there will be no room for sentiment.

"It's an old club of mine and where I started my career," said McCarthy.

"I spent five years there. There were were a lot of nice memories but I'm going back there to work and to get a result."

Agogo magic

Seventeen years ago today Junior Agogo lit up the Deva Stadium.

The on-loan Sheffield Wednesday striker's stunning individual effort in the 2-1 win over Cheltenham Town was later voted as the greatest Chester City goal scored at the ground.

The man himself said afterwards: "I can't remember what happened with the goal. I got the ball from Luke (Beckett) and was looking to give the ball back but I just kept going and I was trying to score."

Agogo bagged two that day and six in total during his 10-match stay at the Deva. He'll go down as one of the club's best loan signings.

Harvey in Dragons frame

You cannot imagine managers are beating down the Racecourse Ground door after Wrexham's season went from bad to worse with an FA Cup humbling by Stafford.

But one man being linked with the vacant Dragons hotseat is former Chester City boss Jim Harvey.

Harvey, appointed as Neil Young's successor at Altrincham just seven weeks ago, is rated by bookies' as the 12/1 fourth favourite to become Mills' replacement.

Say it ain't so, Jim.
