CHESTER CITY are gearing themselves up for the club's biggest game for many years on Saturday when Scarborough visit the Deva Stadium.

A win against the York-shiremen would guarantee the Nationwide Conference title for Chester and a return to the Football League after an absence of four years.

The match, which is not all ticket, is expected to be watched by a crowd in excess of 5,000.

"I can't wait for Saturday," said City chairman Stephen Vaughan.

"This season has been a rollercoaster of emotions, and Tuesday's draw at Shewsbury pulled at every emotion and nerve in my body.

"But it sets up Saturday's game beautifully, and the amount of interest that it is creating is absolutely phenomenal."

City boss Mark Wright and his assistant manager Steve Bleasdale were back in Shropshire last night watching Scarborough in their game at Telford.

Chester suffered some minor knocks at Shrewsbury on Tuesday and they are considering recalling striker Ian Foster and defender Carl Ruffer from their loan spells at Kidderminster Harriers and Droylsden respectively, but a decision won't be made until this evening.

Another worry surrounds leading scorer Daryl Clare, who missed the midweek game because of complications surrounding his new born baby.

"We send Daryl, his partner and the young baby, all our best wishes and prayers and any decision about availability for the weekend will be left totally up to Daryl," said Vaughan.

Meanwhile, Chester have signed a shirt sponsorship deal for next season.

A financial package has been agreed with electronics company Truetone, who will have their logo highlighted on the club's shirts.
