RUGBY UNION: Chester take a break tomorrow after having their North One promotion hopes dented by a home defeat by Preston Grasshoppers last Saturday.
Although they dominated the game they failed to take their chances and the visitors enhanced their own promotion hopes by winning 20-5.
Director of rugby Steve Dorrington said: 'How we didn't win that game I will never know. The lads were absolutely superb, they gave it their all.
'Preston will wonder how they won as we had 90% possession and territorial advantage. But I was extremely proud of my team as their effort and courage was a credit to them. They were simply magic.'
Dorrington and his coaching staff are now focusing on finishing as the title race hots up.
He added: 'We are still in with a mathematical chance of promotion and anyone who writes us off at this stage does so at their peril.'
