Question of the Week
Do you support Cleethorpes Town?
By: Richard Hubbert
Town travel to the Saunders Honda Stadium on Tuesday evening to face third place Chester City, with the Mariners looking to bounce back from their 3-1 home defeat to Stockport on Friday.
Russell Slade will be expecting a distinct improvement from the second half performance at Blundell Park on Friday night, where Town pressed the self destruct button and surrendered a one-goal lead to lose 3-1 to Stockport. The former Notts County manager will have to decide whether to stick with the 4-4-1-1 formation which has worked well in recent weeks, or revert back to his preferred 3-5-2 formation.
Head to Head
P 31 W 16 D 5 L 10 F 46 A 37
The Mariners got the better of Chester during their last meeting in February at Blundell Park. The game had 0-0 written all over it, with neither team managing to produce much in the way of chances, until Martin Gritton grabbed the winning goal, nine minutes before the end.

Chester are riding high in the division at the moment, while the Mariners will be keen to bury the memory of Friday night. Seeing as Town are undefeated away from home this year, I'll go for a draw.
