Chester FC manager Marcus Bignot was disappointed with the manner of his side’s 2-0 home defeat to play-off chasing Dover Athletic on Tuesday night but did give credit for his ‘£200 team’ for going toe to toe with the Whites.

After a strong first half the Blues collapsed in a fashion that has become typical over the last 18 months as a Kevin Lokko header and a Ryan Astles own goal ensured a comfortable success for Chris Kinnear’s side in front of the lowest Chester home crowd for a league game since their reformation.

Bignot revealed after the game that his side that took to the field averaged out at £200 per week, a figure dwarfed by last night’s opposition.

He said: “We worked it out that the average price of our team, because there is a lot of players playing for free and a lot of teenagers, the average wage across the team was £200. For a £200 team we certainly went toe to toe with a play-off team in this league.”
