Chester FC v Barrow
Tuesday 24th October 2017
Deva Stadium


Team News:

Dan Jones misses the game with the same injury that has kept him out for the last few games. He joins fellow injured defenders Dave Nieskens, Moussa Diarra and Thierry Audel on the sidelines. Midfielder David Fitzpatrick also misses out through injury.

Jimmy Dunne is still suspended  following his red card against Shaw Lane.

Recent Form:


The Bluebirds fell to defeat at Ebbsfleet United at the weekend. The home side took the lead through Aaron McClean before Bedsente Gomis equalised for the Bluebirds. But two quick goals for Ebbsfleet with around 15 minutes to go put them out of Barrow’s reach, with a late second for Gomis not enough to salvage a point.

Chester FC:

Chester fell to a 1-2 defeat at home to Boreham Wood on Saturday. Two goals in 7 first half minutes from Shaun Jeffers and Bruno Andrade put Chester 0-2 down at half time, and though Nyal Bell pulled one back for the hosts, it wasn’t enough for a point.
