THE Blues hope to have two new signings in their ranks for tomorrow's trip to Grimsby Town.
Centre-back Paul Ellender yesterday joined on loan until the end of the season from Boston United, while Doncaster Rovers defender Mark Albrighton could also be on his way to Chester.
Ellender, 31, lists Scunthorpe United, Altrincham and Scarborough as his former clubs and has played more than 170 games for Boston.
Albrighton has had 18 starts for Donny this season.
The Blues will try to seal a month-long loan deal for the 29-year-old ex-Telford United man today, according to Chester chairman Stephen Vaughan.
Vaughan told The Chronicle: 'Mark and Paul have proven quality and they've got great experience in the lower divisions.'
Luke Dimech and Stephane Gillet are on duty with Malta and Luxembourg next week.
