NEIL Young will send his players out at AFC Fylde tomorrow with the intention of getting the victory that would effectively seal the title.

Three points clear and with two games to go, table-topping Chester head to the fourth-placed Coasters knowing a win will almost certainly be enough to secure top spot.

Blues boss Young, whose side boast a better goal difference of nine over second-placed Skelmersdale United, said: “We haven’t won the league yet so I don’t want people jumping the gun. We’ve just got to concentrate on Fylde.

“We’re three points clear with a better goal difference so what we’ve got to do is make sure we’re in the same position come the end of the Fylde match. Then we could go to Garforth for our final game in the driving seat.”

Chester could even win the league outright tomorrow by bettering Skelmersdale’s result at lowly Prescot Cables.

Skem slipped three points off the pace on Saturday when they drew with Curzon Ashton and the Blues beat Bamber Bridge with first-half strikes from impressive duo Chris Simm and Michael Powell.

In front of the biggest Exacta Stadium attendance of the season, the final scoreline would have been greater had Michael Taylor not got himself sent-off 12 minutes after the break.

James Madine had little option but to show the centre-half a second yellow card, but it was the only big decision the referee got right all game.

Not only did he refuse to give a blatant penalty for a foul on Simm in the box, Madine also failed to spot Brig goalkeeper Ben Hinchcliffe handling outside of his area.

Far from happy with the official, Young was sent to the stands for taking his protests too far. But he was delighted with the role the crowd played in what was the final home match of the campaign.

Young, who also praised the courage of his players, said: “The crowd brought a lump to my throat – they were just fantastic.”

Report and reaction from the big Fylde clash will be on tomorrow.
