CHESTER FC will equal an 87-year-old club record if they can beat bogey side Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday (3pm).
Victory at the Horsfall Stadium would see the table-topping Blues stretch their winning league sequence to 13 games.
That would match the club’s record run of victories set between November 1925 and February 1926. It would also leave Neil Young’s men at least 15 points clear at the summit.
Chester boss Young, the Blue Square Bet North manager of the month for December, knows his team have given themselves every chance of winning promotion to non-league football’s top flight.
He said: “To have 64 points is a remarkable achievement and I hope I’m standing somewhere in March or April and talking about us having Conference football.
“That’s been my aim since I came here and hopefully I’ll be able to achieve that with Chester. We won’t get a better chance.”
Bradford have slipped to seventh after losing their last five matches. But they have won one and drawn one of their three meetings with Chester in the past two seasons and they were unlucky to lose 3-2 at the Exacta Stadium in March.
The Blues host Oxford City on Wednesday (7.45pm).
