Chester City boss Mark Wright reckons it a tough time lies ahead at Wycombe Wanderers tomorrow. The challenge will be for his side to get past the midfield strength of former Woking midfielder Kevin Betsy and striker Jermaine Easter.

Chester City are still carrying a few injuries and are awaiting the strength of Phil Bolland when he returns to the side.

Mark Wright explained the current state of his squad. ‘We’ve got a good squad and have players coming back from injury. We’re looking to shift some more players out. Obviously ‘jocky’ (Jermaine McSporran) has gone so we can bring somebody else in and we wish him all the best for the future.’

Speaking of tomorrow’s opponents, City gaffer Mark Wright aren’t expecting Wycombe to be pushovers. ‘Wycome will be a side on their own ground who will be full of confidence. We can expect them to play with flair and be inventive,’ explained Wright.

The key player for Wycombe is £80k man, Jermaine Easter who was brought in from Stockport County last term. He has bagged 5 goals so far.

He will be partnered up front by Tommy Mooney who can still turn on the magic.

Missing for Wanderers is Chris Palmer who has a dislocated shoulder and Ian Stonebridge is still recovering from a calf problem.

Matt Bloomfield may be feature after coming back from a hamstring injury.

Keeper Ricardo Baptista returns from international duty with Portugal’s Under-21s and this may see Jamie Young dropped.

Meanwhile, Mark Wright is confident that we can go and get a result in Buckinghamshire.

‘On their day Wycombe are a very good footballing side, but it’s about us trying to nullify what they’ve got. We know they’ve got Jermaine Easter in good scoring form and midfielder Kevin Betsy on his day can be a revelation for them’ said the Blues boss.

Ashley Westwood will be available after a hip problem.

Dean Bennett will be missing due to a back strain.

The long term injury list features Phil Bolland (shoulder), Glenn Cronin and Rob Marsh Evans (both foot).
