Team News

The Wood have no fresh injury concerns going into the fixture.

With Balanta back, Luke Garrard hopes to have a fully fit squad to choose from come Saturday.

Form Guide

The Wood are unbeaten in four matches following Saturday’s 3-1 win at St Albans City.

Bruno Andrade opened the scoring in the 13th minute, with a cleanly struck penalty. Shaun Jeffers, who had returned to the line-up in place of Dan Holman, doubled the lead just before the break.

Jeffers was in strong form, as he then assisted Andrade with a through ball, to score the Wood’s third.

Andrade is now on 10 goals this season, and will hope to add to his tally against Chester.

Chester have won just once in their last five matches, a 2-0 win at home to Maidenhead United.

Managed by Marcus Bignot, Chester currently sit in 21st place, with 12 points.

From the Dugout – Luke Garrard  

“They didn’t progress in the FA Cup on Saturday, against Kidderminster, so I know that there is going to be a reaction on their part.

“I have seen that they have brought in some new bits in personnel today, in right-back Reece Hall-Johnson on-loan from Grimsby; so, they have got players within their team who can cause problems.

“I think they have got a squad there that on their day can cause problems. So, at no stage are we going to underestimate anything that Chester have to offer.

“I can imagine that confidence is low, obviously losing to a team in the league below probably doesn’t help, but Kidderminster have got great quality there.

“It can all change, they can rifle one in within three minutes and that can lift the crowd. It is very much about what we do, about going there with a game plan and trying to execute that as early as possible.”
