We turn our attentions to this evening’s National League North action with a full preview of Chester’s visit to The Brewery Field.
Spennymoor Town v Chester
Tuesday 1st November 2022, 7.45pm
National League North
The Brewery Field
Chester arrive at The Brewery Field feeling good about themselves after leaping to 14th in the National League North table following a 3-2 win at Boston United.
Calum McIntyre’s side tasted defeat in three of their first five outings this season but a confidence-boosting win at Curzon Ashton on August Bank Holiday Monday provided a platform for improvement.
The Blues have now lost just once in their last nine and fans are hoping that this can be the year the club can truly challenge to climb to a higher level.
One To Watch
Kurt Willoughby was drafted into Chester during the summer and has hit the ground running at The Deva Stadium having hit the net six times already this term.
The former England C front man scored 11 goals and won promotion from National League North with York City last season, whilst he’s also prospered at the level before with FC United of Manchester.
A central striker by trade, Willoughby is also comfortable on the wing and Moors defenders will have to stay on alert to keep him quiet at The Brewery Field this evening.
Head To Head
Moors have enjoyed an excellent record against Chester in recent years and have tasted victory in five of the six meetings between the clubs since 2018.
Maximum points were taken by Moors home and away last term as a 4-2 triumph at The Brewery Field in December before goals from Rob Ramshaw and Jordan Thewlis earned a 2-0 win at The Deva Stadium in February.
On The Whistle
Helen Conley will take charge of this evening’s fixture at The Brewery Field, and she will be assisted by David Holmes and Liam Smith.
Tickets are on sale in advance online to both home and away supporters – buying online being the easy and straightforward way to buy for this evening’s fixture.
Fans will also be able to pay by cash or card on the turnstiles at The Brewery Field prior to kick-off.
If you can’t get along to the game tonight then make sure you join us for live commentary wherever you are on the planet.
Mark Simpson will be live from The Brewery Field from 7.35pm with supporters able to access the live coverage online, via the Durham OnAir app, on DAB radio or on Freeview Channel 277.
Moors have been installed as 6/5 favourites for three points tonight, while Chester are a 9/5 shot for victory and you can back a draw at odds of 9/4.
