Match Preview – Chester v Barrow

Match Preview - Chester v Barrow

All you need to know ahead of our trip to Chester in the Vanarama National League.




Team news: 

The Bluebirds will be missing Nick Anderton who was sent off in Saturday’s win at Solihull Moors.

Shaun Beeley is a doubt after coming off with a hamstring injury on Saturday.


Recent Form: 

Barrow have now only lost once in their last 6 games after a 4-2 victory over Solihull Moors on Saturday. That win followed a 1-1 draw with Wrexham last Tuesday.

Chester beat Bromley 1-0 on Saturday, gaining a valuable three points after three successive defeats. Interestingly, they conceded in the last 5 minutes of all three of those games.


Last Time Out:

We beat Chester 3-2 in the reverse fixture at the Furness Building Society Stadium earlier this season. Two goals from Jordan Williams and a one from Ross Hannah put the Bluebirds in control at 3-0. Chester fought back to make it 3-2 with two goals in 3 second half minutes but the Bluebirds hung on for the three points.

Our last visit to Chester was in March 2016 when two goals from Jordan Williams saw the Bluebirds claim 3 points after then Chester player Ross Hannah opened the scoring for the home side.
