CHESTER City manager Keith Curle saw his injury problems mount last night, when defender Sean Hessey picked up a calf injury during the reserve team game against Blackpool at the Deva Stadium.
"Sean took a knock during the match, hope-fully it won't be too serious, but we will monitor it closely," said Curle..
Chester drew their opening Pontins League game of the new campaign against the Seasiders, the match finishing 1-1. Youngster James Scales registered City's equaliser with a stunning 20-yard effort in the 65th minute.
Former Oldham and Crewe striker Rodney Jack who is on trial with City played for the full 90 minutes. The St Vincent international started the game in a striking role, then in the second period he was moved into the right of midfield.
Record signing Gregg Blundell looks to be on the road to a full recovery following his recent ankle injury, he has now completed two days of intensive training.
Curle reflected:" Gregg is coming along well, and thankfully he hasn't felt any adverse reaction to the training programme.
"We will monitor his progress closely, our physio Clive Goodyear has guided Gregg's rehabilitation and he has done an excellent job."
Meanwhile, Chester's Coca-Cola League Two game against Grimsby Town that was postponed last Saturday because of the waterlogged pitch, has been re- arranged for Tuesday, September 6 (kick-off 7.45 pm).
