There's always plenty going on with regards to Chester FC and we've pulled together what's been happening today.
Ross Killock and Luke George are making good progress as they recover from injury lay-offs.
The pair got valuable minutes under their belt in a behind-closed-doors friendly with Port Vale yesterday (August 23).
Killock played 45 minutes while George, who has missed Chester's last two matches, came through unscathed and could come into contention for Saturday's home clash with Sutton United (3pm).
James Akintunde sat out the contest after pulling up injured with a tweaked hamstring in the Boreham Wood warm-up at the weekend, and is a doubt for this Saturday.
OLI AT THE DOUBLE
He's come a long way since opening his account for Chester FC on a cold January afternoon in Welling.
Ex-Blues loaneed McBurnie made his Swansea City debut on Tuesday evening, bagging a brace and an assist in the Swans' 3-1 EFL Cup success at Peterborough United.
He is battling it out with Spanish World Cup winner Fernando Llorente and £15m record signing Borja Baston for a striking berth at the Liberty Stadium. He's done his chances no harm.
Said McBurnie: “I’m thankful to the gaffer to get an opportunity. I knew he was always going to strengthen after some of the players went out and they’ve brought in some very good strikers, but It’s good for me to look up to players who’ve been there and done it.
"Fernando’s won the World Cup – so I can only learn off him. It’s good for the gaffer to have competition, hopefully this has given him something to think about."
BLOW FOR EVANS
Young Blues defender Kieran Evans was dealt a blow after suffering a suspected broken wrist in the friendly with Port Vale.
The teenager has yet to feature in the National League for the Blues this season.
WE'RE NO EASY TOUCH
Sutton United skipper James Collins says he is happy for National League clubs to keep on underestimating them.
Sutton travel to Chester on Saturday sitting third in the table with 10 points from the opening five games and have raised a few eyebrows with their early-season form.
But Collins told the Sutton Guardian that he hopes that teams are taking too much notice.
"If you look at some of the reaction from managers and players after we’ve beaten them, they think they should be beating us because they think we’re not a very good team,” he said.
“We hope they keep thinking that and that we keep surprising them – and you never know, when you start winning games and you get that winning mentality of going to places thinking you cannot get beat, it is hard for teams to beat you."
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVE!
Former Chester City striker and cult hero Dave Cameron turned 41 today. He played for Halifax, Droylsden and Rhyl, among others, after leaving the Blues in 2003.
