WOKING DEFEAT UPSETS BOSS

Manager Steve Burr believes his side deserved something from Saturday's match at Woking. The Blues were beaten 1-0 with Giuseppe Sole scoring the match winner seven minutes into the second period. Chester once again made a slow start and had to weather home pressure for the opening ten minutes but came more into the game as the half wore on and almost took the lead as Kingsley James saw a tremendous 25-yard-efford effort hit the bar and bounce down to safety minutes before the interval. Burr thought his side should have been awarded a penalty following a foul in the box on Sean McConville earlier in the half.

The home side pressed more after the restart and got the all important breakthrough as Ben Heneghan lost out to Sole who chipped Jon Worsnop to claim all three points.

Following the defeat that saw Chester drop to 19th Burr told the Chester Chronicle: “I am absolutely gutted, the effort they have put in today, they should’ve got something out of the game. I still want a referee to tell me why decisions are different when you step into that 18-yard box but I’m still not getting answers.”

“Sean McConville was brought down in the first half, inside the penalty area, and anywhere else on the park, the referee would’ve given a free kick. So that was disappointing. We hit the bar, cleared a few off the line, but the result is hard to take today.”

Chester are back in action on Tuesday night with a home game against Southport, kick-off 19.45hrs.

BLUES BEATEN BY TORQUAY

Chester were beaten at home 2-0 by Torquay United last night. SEcond half goals from Aaron Downes and Ryan Bowman gave The Gulls all three points to leave the Blues in 19th place, just a point above the relegation zone. Manager Steve Burr conceded that the better team had won on the night saying: “The overriding thoughts are that we’ve come up against a side that I think is the best side we’ve played this season and I know we've been beat by Barnet here, who were a good side. I thought in spells we did okay but we just fell short and as I say you’ve just got to hold your hands up sometimes and the better side won.”

HOME JOY FOR BLUES

A superb John Rooney free-kick after 14 minutes brought Chester’s first home win of the season on Saturday against previously unbeaten Macclesfield Town. This was a well fought victory in stark contrast to the two poor home defeats previously dished out by Barnet and FC Halifax Town. Manager Steve Burr made just one change from the side that lost at Gateshead with Kieran Charnock replacing Danny Taylor.

And Burr was delighted to see his side pick up their first three home points of the season against one of his former clubs, he said: “I felt there was a lot of good signs last week at Gateshead and we’ve moved on again from that. I was just pleased for the lads and most importantly pleased for the supporters. The support was terrific as it has been all season and like them I’ll have a good weekend.”

“I wouldn’t say we were hanging on at the end, but with the two performances we’ve had here prior to this one, it was just important that we got a win for these fans. I think last week at Gateshead, who are a good outfit and an established Conference club, a bit of anxiety came into it with us being 1-0 up and we couldn’t really handle that and I never really felt that this week.”

“Macc haven’t lost yet so they’ve had a good start and its something that will give us a lot of confidence. I thought we should have perhaps had more goals but it’s 1-0, three points and something to build on and we’re just happy to get the win.”

Chester are back in home league action on Tuesday night when Torquay United are the visitors, kick-off 19.45hrs.
