THE Chester City chairman Stephen Vaughan is hoping his play-off bound club can finish off their regular season on a high note to get the club into the right frame of mind for the forthcoming end-of-season promotion competition.
City complete their Nationwide Conference schedule at champions Yeovil Town, and Vaughan is looking forward to the weekend - and also the forthcoming 16 days.
"The club is buzzing at the moment. We finish our league programme at the weekend, against the new champions and also before a live television audience, so everybody will be up for it," he said.
"What better confidence booster could we ask for prior to the play-offs than a good performance in the West Country? And then, of course, we'll have the end-of-season play-offs to look forward to in a positive frame of mind."
The Chester chairman continued: "People talk about pressure in football but our success on the field this season has created what certain people call pressure. We are within touching distance of regaining our place in the Football League and it has created a tremendous atmosphere and feeling all around the club.
"Mark Wright and the players are in a great frame of mind at the moment and we are all looking forward to the next two-and-a-half weeks and the prize that is at the end of the rainbow."
The Nationwide Conference have announced play-off final ticket details. The match will be played at Stoke City's Britannia Stadium on Saturday, May 10 (kick-off 2.30pm).
Admission prices are adults £20, Children under 17 and OAP's £10. Tickets will be on sale from the club offices of participating clubs from May 5.
The four play-off teams have already been decided. They are Chester City, Dagenham & Redbridge, Doncaster Rovers and Morecambe. The semi-finals of the competition will be played over two legs on Thursday, May 1 and Bank Holiday Monday, May 5.
The next game at the Deva Stadium is this coming Monday evening, when Liverpool Reserves entertain Everton Reserves in the mini derby match.
City's directors are hoping to hear in the next few days if Liverpool will be renewing their contract to play reserve team games at the Deva Stadium next season.
Last night's Chester City Reserves match against Farsley Celtic Reserves at Flint Town's ground was postponed because the Yorkshire side could not raise a team.
