access_time 4 years ago

Ross Embleton led the O’s to a 1-1 draw against league leaders Dover Athletic on Saturday in his first game as Interim Head Coach.

Nortei Nortey opened the scoring for the visitors in the 23rd minute but the O’s equalised through Craig Clay 12 minute from time amid a flurry of home attacks.

Chester arrive at the Matchroom Stadium sitting in 21st position, with three wins, eight draws and nine defeats from their 20 matches.

Marcus Bignot was appointed manager on September 20 and has overseen two wins in his 12 matches, including a 3-2 victory over Barrow last month. Last time out, Chester earned a 1-1 draw against Bromley on Saturday.

Ross Hannah opened the scoring for the visiting Chester in the 14th minute, but the lead was not to last long as Louis Dennis equalised just a minute later.


Matt Harrold impressed after coming off the bench in the 1-1 draw against Dover on Saturday and will be pushing for a starting spot.

Goalkeeper Charlie Grainger aggravated a hip injury in the warm up on Saturday which forced him to miss the match, and the 21-year-old remains sidelined tonight.
