After two successive away defeats United return home to The Riverside on Saturday 18th September to face FC Hartlepool in the Wearside League with kick-off at 14:00pm.
It will be yet another tough test for Chester's youngsters in a league where there ar no easy games. FC Hartlepool sit 6th in the division having played 11 games with 6 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats. They've scored 20 and conceded 18 to give them 19 points so far.
But crucially they come to Chester-Le-Street on the back of three consecutives wins and confidence high. Last time out they won 4 - 1 away at Norton and Stockton Ancients Youth in the Monkwearmouth Charity Cup 1st round.
After two defeats in a row First Team Coach Didier Agathe has some some difficult selection dilemmas to discuss with his coaching staff before deciding on the starting XI.
