Wright stuff sparks revival

THE Mark Wright revolution is gathering pace with every game that Chester City play.

THE Mark Wright revolution is gathering pace with every game that Chester City play.

Wright, who was appointed to the Deva Stadium managerial hot seat just over two weeks ago, oversaw his third consecutive victory last night, as Chester again eased their Nationwide Conference relegation worries with a well-deserved win against Telford United at Bucks Head.

In the past month City have tried to bolster their squad - by signing three members of the Telford team.

And on last night's showing the respective players refusal to move to the Deva Stadium has done Chester a monumental favour.

The Shropshire side's best spell came early on, but Wayne Brown in the City goal made good saves from Mark Quayle and Gary Fitzpatrick.

City took the lead after 26 minutes when Welsh Youth international Lee Woodyatt looped a header over Edwards following a cross from Paul Carden.

Two goals in the second half by leading scorer Mark Beesley, who took his season's total to 12, broke Telford's down.

After 47 minutes he latched onto a through ball from Woodyatt, outpaced the pedestrian Neil Moore, before sweeping the ball past the advancing Edwards.

David Brown was the orchestrator of the third goal, Beesley taking advantage of his good work to score from close range in the 65th minute.

Central defenders Phil Bolland and Gary Brabin were again outstanding in the heart of City's defence, while young Woodyatt's performances are already beginning to draw the attention of Football League scouts.

The most pleasing aspect of the last three matches to Wright will be the fact that they have won them without conceding a goal.
