Stevenage Borough Football Club

Stevenage Borough Football Club

Lowly Chester City we’re today played off the park and we’re clearly second best in all departments against an industrious Stevenage Borough outfit.

The Blues huffed and puffed but didn’t really carve out a golden opportunity to score a goal throughout the entire ninety minutes.   We were far too busy hoofing it in to the air, or in to the stands, or in to empty space or to one of their players.

We’d have plenty of the ball in their half but do absolutely nothing with it. Then, as a reminder of the gulf between the two sides Stevenage would counter attack and force Danby in to making a save.

Had it not been for our shot-stopper we certainly would not have won on Tuesday and we certainly would not have escaped with a 1-0 defeat today. We can’t even take throw-ins properly sometimes!!

Anyway, we are truely truely abysmal and I’m dreading the impending defeat next sunday. I know that Wrexham are going through a sticky spell as well, but they surely can’t be as bad as us.

Said it before and I’ll say it again, we’d go down even if we’d started on zero points.

A last gasp header from Nick Chadwick helped earn struggling Chester City their second league win of the season.

Striker Gregg Blundell was twice involved in the night’s key incident, being brought down in the box by Gateshead defender James Curtis, who was sent off.

He then fired home from the spot, only for on-loan striker Mike Mackay to drill home Gateshead’s equaliser.

But Chadwick won the points for City, nodding home Neil Ashton’s cross.

The victory will give Chester’s young side confidence in their thankless task of trying to beat the drop to the Blue Square North.

However the attendance of 994 will be very much worrying for the Chester City management team as supporters begin to turn their back on the club.
