Davies' departure to give Chester a ray of light
Simon Davies left his position as Chester manager this week. Replacing Davies in the Deva Stadium hotseat is Mark Wright.
Wright returns to the club for a third spell as manager. He will be hoping that he can revive the club's fortunes.
As Davies leaves Chester in 19th position though if it wasn't for all the points deductions they would sit just outside the relegation zone on goal difference.
Saturday's visitors to the Deva Stadium, Morecambe, are only ahead of Chester themselves by virtue of a superior goal difference. The Shrimpers have found League Two life more difficult in their second season than they did last season at this level.
The two teams met earlier on in the season in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on that night Morecambe triumphed via penalties. However, this weekend the change of manager could bring about the victory for Chester.
The home side are 5/4 favourites for the three points with Sammy McIllroy's side available at 11/5 with the draw at 23/10.
Bottom of the table Luton host Dagenham & Redbridge at Kenilworth Road on Saturday and Luton look value at 13/10 to keep the three points in Bedfordshire. Whilst it looks doubtful that the Hatters will be able to escape the drop due to their massive points deduction, with Mick Harford at the helm the side will not give up trying.
Rochdale have quietly sneaked up into sixth place in the table and are improving all the time under the guidance of Keith Hill. At the weekend Macclesfield are the visitors to Spotland. Macc have suffered three league defeats on the spin and Dale are likely to make that four.
Rochdale are 8/13 for the victory with Keith Alexander's side at 9/2 and the draw at 11/4.
A £10 treble on Chester, Luton and Rochdale looks very tempting paying returns of £83.60.
