CHESTER CITY will aim to climb off the bottom of Coca-Cola League Two this evening when they travel to Lincolnshire to face Boston United at York Street.
Victory tonight would lift City out of the relegation zone and manager Mark Wright is aware of the importance of the game.
He said: "This is a vital match for us. It is our game in hand over most of the other clubs and we must ensure that we take advantage of it.
"We played well in the second half of our game at Wrexham on Sunday, so we must ensure we don't concede silly goals and we must also ensure that we perform for the full 90 minutes at Boston - the way we did for 45 at the Racecourse."
Wright continued: "Boston are a hard-working side who will punish you if you give them too much space up front. But the players are training well and they are taking the positives that came out of the recent games against Cheltenham and Wrexham."
Central defender Paul Ellender, who has played in City's last five matches, could be playing against them this evening. The 31-year-old was recalled from his loan spell with City by Boston on Monday and he will be included in their squad.
However, Wright has been boosted by the news that defender Mark Albrighton has had his loan spell from Doncaster Rovers extended until the end of the season.
"Mark has been outstanding for us during his stay and we are grateful to (Doncaster manager) Dave Penney for allowing us to keep the player for the rest of the season," said Wright.
Chester will still be without midfielder Tom Curtis (foot) and striker Gregg Blundell (ankle), while Ryan Lowe and Michael Branch both picked up injuries in the derby match at Wrexham on Sunday and are considered doubts.
