CHESTER City will be aiming to return to the top of the Nationwide Conference this evening when they travel to face Telford United at Bucks Head.
City are currently in second place in the table on the same points as leaders Hereford United, but have two games in hand.
Telford were close to going out of business last week - they are £650,000 in debt - and their main benefactor and chairman Andy Shaw had to put his business empire into financial receivership on Thursday, but the club have undertaken to carry on and the first stage of the recovery plan is to complete their fixtures this season.
City manager Mark Wright is aware that the Telford players could respond to the club's off-the-field problems in a positive way. He said: "We, like everybody else in football, wish Telford United all the best for the future, but when players face uncertainty, like they are,, they can often adopt a siege mentality.
"I am sure the Telford players will be up for this match and we must adapt accordingly. There will be a good crowd at the game and it should be a tremendous atmosphere."
Iain Turner will miss the game, he is on duty with the Scotland under-21 squad, so Andy Woods will make his debut for City.
"Iain has been tremendous in his time with us and he thoroughly deserves this honour. Andy is a quality goalkeeper and I am sure he will do well," said Wright.
Another player who could be in line for a debut, is midfielder, Lee Elam, who has joined City on a loan agreement from Yeovil Town. This is Elam's second spell as a player under Mark Wright, the pair were together when the former Liverpool and England star was in charge at Southport.
