Fresh from Saturday’s hard-fought draw away at Altrincham last weekend, Mark Bower’s promotion-chasing Bradford (Park Avenue) side face Chester, who are sat in eighth place and only two points behind Avenue in the National League North table.
Danny East’s late strike salvaged a point in Lancashire, and so Bower will expect to have the full compliment available to him. Charlie Andrew, Macauley Langstaff and Romaney Critchlow-Noble are all available after their debuts.
Bradford, without a win since the Boxing Day massacre of Guiseley at Nethermoor will be looking to return to winning ways, whereas Chester ended their own rotten run of form, with a 4-1 thrashing of Boston United.
Bower was encouraged by Saturday’s performance and told James Smith that it was one they could build on: “Yeah definitely, plenty of positives to take from it. We’ll play a Chester team who play a different style to Altrincham, so it’s about adapting your game”.
