Killock played the 90 minutes in midweek and he claimed an assist on their second goal as his long ball forward was seized on by Gareth Seddon to score.

‘Leeds loanee Ross Killock gave the ball away as Luton picked out Andre Gray but Killock was able to make amends with a stunning block just as the Hatter’s striker unleashed his effort.`
‘Ross Killock nearly headed the Blues level but he just couldn’t get enough power behind it and Mark Tyler gathered.`
‘Ross Killock once again produced a brilliant block deny Andre Gray a shot at goal as Chester looked to press on with the home advantage.`
