It's odd to feel we're still bottom after a fighting win at Chester like today's! I suppose it shows that the Chester game is something separate from reality. As I've suggested before, it's a game which feels different from the others, a game where the usual rules of engagement don't apply. Thankfully it fell in our favour and even if there is a sense of the Chester derby being unlike any other league game, those three points feel real enough to me!
We rode our luck as Gavin Ward's excellence kept Chester at bay. City didn't play like a side which had suffered such a bad run of results as they kept plugging away despite things going wrong-most notably the first half turning point where a possibly generous decision to disallow their goal turned into a lead for us within a minute!
The thing is to keep going now. We've halved the gap to Macclesfield, but now we must build on that achievement. We only have a day's recuperation before the long trip to Wycombe, and on the same night Macclesfield slog down to Dagenham. We mustn't let them get out of our sights again; as long as we're within a game of overtaking them, especially as we've three games in hand over them, it's all there to play for.
