Chester midfielder Tom Shaw believes the next few games are of utmost importance for the side – if they are to pick up maximum points to finish the season on a high.

The 29-year-old midfielder, speaking to, understood how vital points are in the following games – with the Blues facing three more away trips in the campaign.

“We had a really bright, competitive training session on Monday. I think everyone is feeling fighting fit and ready to play Torquay.”

A late equaliser was the killer blow in Saturday’s game with Boreham Wood – but Shaw stated that there were plenty of positives to take from the draw.chester

“Obviously the draw on Saturday was hard to take. I thought we played well – but both of the goals we let in were soft goals.

“We’ve got to be doing better than that to be able to compete, and we have the players to do that. There were plenty of positives to take though – and we’ve got to take those down to Torquay tomorrow.”

With only three wins in the last twenty games, being able to pick up wins from the remaining games will secure survival for the Blues – and Shaw believes the players have the ability to end the season on a high note.

“No game is easy – but we’re taking the confidence from training into our next few games, with the belief we can carve out positive results. There are good players in this team – and if we play to our best we can get the result.

“There’s nothing else we can do but try to get maximum points from our remaining games. We’ll be hoping to guarantee safety as soon as we can, so we can enjoy the remainder of the season.”
