CHESTER CITY play the third pre- season friendly this afternoon, when they make the short journey to mid-Cheshire to face Conference club Northwich Victoria.
However, the repercussions of the alarmingly low Deva Stadium attendance on Thursday, are still reverberating around the club.
Less then 300 people turned up to watch the friendly match against Belgian Premier League club, Cercle Brugge, which left City chairman, Stephen Vaughan, angry and disappointed.
"I have been urged by supporters to invest in players to make a determined effort to gain promotion, I have done just that.
"In return I think it's fair to assume that the supporters will do their bit by turning up, that has not been the case, where the games against Stoke City and Brugge have seen the club lose a not insignificant amount of money," said Vaughan.
"I am extremely disillusioned. I would like to thank the 270 or so people who did turn up, but you do question the commitment of certain sections of our so-called fan base!
"I love Chester, it is a big and important part of my life, I just wish others, particularly those people who continually criticise the club with cheap comments on these websites, would show a similar level of affection."
Meanwhile, Chester defender Sean Hessey will appeal against his five-match suspension on Thursday July 27. The ban was imposed following an incident during the home match against Stockport County last season.
Meanwhile Vics expect to have all four summer signings on show today.
Steve Burr's arrivals are goalkeeper Phil Senior (Huddersfield Town), defenders Tony Gallimore and Gavin Gallagher (Rochdale) and striker Kevin Townson (Macclesfield). Several trialists who showed up well in Monday's 2-2 draw at Kidsgrove Athletic will also be introduced.
Work on re-surfacing the car park is still being undertaken and was the cause of Wednesday's home game against Port Vale being called off.
The club continue their pre-season action next week when they host Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday, then Witton Albion on Thursday.
