Craig Mahon is set to hand Chester a major fitness boost and believes he is fit enough to push for a start next weekend.

The popular 28-year-old is into his fifth campaign with the Blues, but has been ruled out since the beginning of October, after cracking a bone in his foot against Woking and has since missed two months of action.

Chester remain in the National League’s bottom four and face a crucial period in their next four matches – three of which are at the Deva – and midfielder Mahon is hoping he will be considered for selection to face Solihull Moors on Saturday.

“I’m back training for the past week, I’m not quite at the intensity to be starting games but I’m doing all the running and I’m ready to hit the ground running this week,” he said.

“I want to start against Solihull, that’s all I’m focused on.

“I’ve spent enough time on the sidelines now, and I’ve not rushed back, ensured it’s fully healed so I can try and force my way into the team from the off.”
