CHESTER CITY manager Ian Rush is instructing his players to get back to basics when they entertain Shrewsbury Town tomorrow.
City, who slumped to a 4-1 defeat at Bristol Rovers on Tuesday, are winless in their last five league outings, which makes the game against the Shrews a must-win match.
"The performance at Bristol Rovers was unacceptable, and was without doubt the worst showing since I took over the manager's job here," said Rush.
"There will be changes, and the lads have been told that they have got to get back to basics and reproduce the sort of performances they showed when we arrived here."
Chester will have Cortex Belle available again following a four-match suspension, while last season's 20-goal marksman Darryn Stamp has returned from a loan spell at Kidderminster Harriers and is also likely to be involved in the squad.
Defender Sean Hessey, who picked up his fifth booking of the season in the FA Cup tie at Halifax Town, misses the game because of a one-match suspension.
Rush could make three changes to the side. Shrewsbury, who are third from bottom of the Coca Cola League Two table, will include Tranmere Rovers defender Neil Ashton in their squad. The 19-year-old signed on loan last night until the end of the season.
