Chester FC return to the Deva Stadium, for the first time in 2022/23, with last season’s Play-Off Semi Finalists Brackley Town the opponents.
Manager Calum McIntyre would have been pleased with an opening day point at Alfreton Town, despite the stoppage time equaliser for the hosts. A notoriously difficult place to go, the Blues boss saw his side take plenty of positives with their point, as well seeing a fantastic away following which looked to make up at least half of the 724 crowd.
The Seals’ squad has been bolstered this week with the signings of full-back Kieran Coates and midfielder Danny Devine, and both could make their debuts this weekend.
Kevin Wilkin’s Brackley Town were defeated by eventual Play-Off winners York City in May. They have lost some key players during the summer, but have made equally impressive acquisitions with the likes of George Carline and Callum Stead joining the club.
These two teams played out a goalless draw on the final day of last season at St James Park.
