Itr's a cold one at the Deva today.
Chester FC play host to Aldershot Town looking to keep their faint National League survival hopes alive.
This week saw former manager Neil Young return to the club in an advisory capacity to Marcus Bignot, and he is here today to try and aid the Blues cause against a Shots side who were humbled 7-1 at AFC Fylde and will be looking to bounce back.
We will have all the action as it happens.
You can catch the manager’s reaction over on our Facebook page HERE.

Shots the better side but a pretty turgid game all round so far.
Torquay 1-0 up at Solihull Moors and Guiseley beating FC Halifax Town.
Oyeleke fires wide from 18 yards for Shots.
Aldershot really turning the screw now. Finding gaps in behind and getting crosses into the box. Chester not creating anything.
What a save!
What a save from Andy Firth. Low cross in finds McClure who looks to fire home from close range but Chester keeper turns it onto post.
Firth out well to gather a through ball that almost had McClure in.
Comes to nothing
Blues corner comes in from Roberts but can’s find Astles at the back post.
Snow swirling around the stadium now. Shots coming into this. Cross finds Fenelon at the far post but he totally mis-kicks it. Weather plays its part.

McClure gets in behind and his cross is pushed away by Firth before being hacked away by Roberts.
Decent phase of play from Shots sees McQuoid get in but he is flagged offside.
