Match Preview | Chester v Altrincham


ALTRINCHAM will look to bounce back from their opening day defeat to York City when they make the trip to Chester on Tuesday night (7:45PM).

The Robins will be pleased that they have a game to focus on quickly after York came back from 1-0 down to claim a 3-1 victory at the weekend.

Manager Phil Parkinson will have to decide if he wants to make changes to the side or stick with the eleven that were solid for most of the first half against the Minstermen.

Chester picked up a good point away at Boston United in their opener, so will be looking to add to that in front of their home faithful. 

Last time out:

The clubs last met in March when Altrincham came away with an impressive 4-0 victory at the J. Davidson Stadium. 

Second half goals from Joe Pigott, Josh Hancock (2) and John Johnston were the difference on the day.

The visitors were also reduced to 10 men when Scott Burton was sent off.
