Marcus Bignot feels if Chester are ‘not careful’ they will suffer back-to-back relegations after their five-year stint in the National League came to an abrupt end.

Saturday’s 2-0 home defeat against rivals Tranmere Rovers – played out in front of just 1,300 Blues fans in a crowd of 3,103 – saw Chester’s inevitable relegation finally confirmed with four games of the season still remaining. Bignot – who has been told his contract will not be renewed at the end of the current campaign – chose to address the club’s off-field turmoil in a candid post-match interview, and believes the club’s supporters, who own the football club, ‘deserve to be told the truth’ and feels another relegation next season is not out of the question.

“There’s a complete lack of experience on the football-side of things. The fans deserve to be told the truth, shown the reality, the facts,” Bignot explained.

“The fans need answers. Even if I’m not here I’ve always worked in terms of how can I help the football club. I’ve presented to them, anytime their football working group wants to call on my experience, playing and management – that has never happened.

“I just want to help the football club. It’s not about me, I’ll be ok. It hurts though, I want to be the manager here and I won’t get that opportunity. If they don’t want me then that’s fine, but when you have got Neil Young in the building, I am frustrated.”
