CHESTER CITY management received some good news last night when star striker Daryl Clare announced that he would be fit to face Leigh RMI at Hilton Park on New Year's Day.
Clare, who has scored eight goals in his last six Conference outings, hobbled out of the Boxing Day clash with Leigh at the Deva Stadium with a badly swollen ankle. However, the ex-Boston United hotshot trained yesterday and reported no adverse reaction.
Chester also suffered a couple of other injuries during the 5-0 demolition of Leigh last Friday but Scott Guyett (hamstring) and skipper Paul Carden (dead leg) are both expected to be fit for Thursday's reverse fixture.
City are currently six points clear at the top of the Nationwide Conference table, and City boss Mark Wright said: "The confidence at the club is sky-high at the moment, and every-body is looking forward with anticipation to each game that comes along."
* Several Chester City supporters are involved in the "Great North West Programme and Memorabilia Fair" at the Cresta Court Hotel, Altrincham, today from 1pm.
Admission is £1 for adults while children are admitted free of charge.
