Jimmy Harvey will be hoping his men can build on their last two wins with a favourable result in the capital on Saturday.
The game in Essex is the first of three road trips in just over a week but manager Jim Harvey is still beaming following last weekend’s impressive 3-1 win against in-form AFC Wimbledon, and he wants his players to continue where they left off.
“The lads have set the standard and now they have to try and maintain that level,” Harvey said.
“Grays is a six-pointer and it would be nice to think we will be going down there with a little bit more confidence.”
Harvey will have to prepare without injury victims Anthony Barry (knee) and Michael Lea (groin), but Shaun Kelly is fit again following his groin injury and Gregg Blundell has shaken off a slight knock.
What’s for sure, except for the Chester City Exiles regulars, there won’t be much of an away following from Chester City. Chester City’s away travel club, affectionately known by regulars as the ‘Hipkiss Express’ are not offering a coach to this fixture due to escalating costs and reduced take up. I can’t remember the last time this happened!
