HAVING been royally entertained on Tuesday, Blues fans head to the Deva tomorrow aiming for more of the same.
The 2-2 midweek draw with Luton was arguably City’s most exciting game of the season – and even Mark Wright enjoyed it!
The Chester boss, who famously takes pride from clean sheets and no-nonsense defending, admitted: “One thing’s for certain – the supporters must have been happy.
“I don’t like exciting games as a manager, but even I enjoyed it. It was very good. If that continues, fantastic.”
Chesterfield provide the opposition for the Blues, and Wright is surprised to see the Spireites languishing in mid-table.
He said: “I don’t think where they are in the league is a true reflection of what they’re about.
“It will be another stern test and at the moment we’ve got a couple on injuries which depletes us even more.”
Wright refused to reveal the identity of the injured players, but he will assess their fitness today before deciding whether to name them in his squad.
City picked up a couple of costly bookings in Tuesday’s Luton game.
