Not the result the Blues wanted but on to the next one.
Thanks for joining us on the live blog today, hopefully the pickings will be more fruitful when the Blues entertain Kidderminster Harriers (who won their first game in 19 today) when they visit the Swansway Chester Stadium on Tuesday, November 10.
