CHESTER CITY will be hoping that they can get to within touching distance of a return to the Football League tonight when they face Doncaster Rovers in the Nationwide Conference play-off semi-final, first leg match.
The sell out all-ticket game at Belle Vue is bound to be a tense and fraught affair and anybody with a nervous disposition would be well advised to keep away this evening, and also miss Monday's eagerly anticipated return leg at the Deva Stadium.
City boss Mark Wright is well aware of the task that lies ahead for his team.
He said: "We know what to expect from Doncaster. They are a big and strong side and we are expecting an extremely hard game.
"The atmosphere at Belle Vue is bound to be hostile.
"They had two players sent off at the Deva Stadium when we met earlier this season and you can be sure that they are as keen as we are to progess to the final."
Wright continued: "Everyone in our squad is fit and if we continue to do what we have been doing recently, particularly in the last two games, we should do well.
"The game at Belle Vue will be extremely passionate because everyone is aware of the prize. We will build from a solid base and we will keep our shape and be strong.
"We have built our success this season on a strong defence and it will be the same at Doncaster."
Chester, who will have a following of more than 1,000 at tonight's match, have a full squad to select from.
Striker Mark Quayle is available again following a three-match suspension while defenders Danny Collins and Carl Ruffer have shaken off recent injuries and are available for selection.
Tonight's match, which kicks off at 8pm, will be shown live on Sky Television and there is full radio coverage on BBC Radio Merseyside (1485mw).
CHESTER CITY (from): Brown, Worsnop, Woodyatt, Davies, Ruffer, Collins, Guyatt, Bolland, Hatswell, McIntyre, Carden, Brady, Carey, Kelly, Blackburn, Twiss, Clare, Quayle, Sugden, Beesley.
