Chester boss Steve Burr was disappointed his side could not have been more clinical in the first half of their thrilling draw at Guiseley.

Chester dominated the opening half – going in 1-0 up at the interval – but the game finished 3-3 after an incredible finale.

Burr said: “In the first half that game should have been out of sight – we had enough chances.chester

“In the second half, the goals that we conceded gave us a mountain to climb. But we showed a lot of character to get something out of the game today which was pleasing.

“But it should have been out of sight.”

It was a wet and windy Easter Monday afternoon in Yorkshire; with the flurries of adverse weather making it tough for both teams.

“The conditions were difficult again today. We don’t like to make excuses but in the second half it was very difficult to get it out of that bottom end of the field.

“But at half time we were pleased with how we played – just disappointed we hadn’t scored more goals.

“To score three goals away from home and not get the win is hard to take.

“In the manner of the way it came though, it was a good point.”

The Blues face another side down the wrong end of the table up next, as Boreham Wood visit the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

“Boreham Wood is another big game, we’ll get the lads ready for Saturday and go out with the intention to get the three points.

“We created enough chances to get a cushion in yesterday’s game – which is what we always seem to need.”
