CHESTER FC have the chance to write their name into the Blue Square Bet North history books tonight when they make the long trip to Workington (7.45pm).
Should the table-topping Blues avoid defeat in the rearranged clash, they would stretch their unbeaten run to an amazing 22 games.
That would break the record set by Eastwood Town – featuring current Chester goalkeeper John Danby – across two seasons in 2011.
Blues boss Neil Young will give fitness checks to top scorer Antoni Sarcevic, centre-back Paul Linwood and right-back Wes Baynes after the trio picked up knocks in the 2-1 win at Corby Town on Saturday.
Young revealed after the hard-fought victory – which moved his side 16 points clear at the summit – that players not involved against Corby, like Ashley Williams and Lewis Turner, could come into contention this evening.
And last night Young indicated he could put high-profile new signing Lee Trundle straight into his squad.
Tonight’s Borough Park clash was originally scheduled to take place on December 22.
But to the anger and frustration of travelling Chester fans, it was postponed less than 90 minutes before kick-off.
