Chester will be calling on the Conference to explain why they have 'moved the goalposts' on allowing the Bulls and Salisbury extra time to pay creditors.
Speaking to the Chester Chronicle, Blues chairman Tony Durkin said: “We are going to have to have discussions with the Conference over this and try and put some pressure on them as it is a ridiculous situation.
“We want to know what is the basis for them moving the goalposts again.
“It is impossible to start preparing properly for a season when we are just left in limbo like this. We want some answers. I think that the Conference think that Chester will just slot in somewhere, but it’s not as simple as that and, realistically, we are going to be left with just three weeks to prepare for a season.
“It holds back things like season tickets and leaves us in a difficult position. We will be seeking discussions as soon as possible.”
The paper also reports that Chester manager Steve Burr took to Twitter to express his dissatisfaction: “You've heard the saying, rules are there to be broken. #FARCE.”
