Match Report

“Really disappointing all round,” was Steve Cooper’s verdict after this heavy defeat by rivals Chester City. “We assumed with a local derby and the positions in the League that it’d be a close game. But it was very disappointing!”

The contest was effectively over inside the opening 25 minutes, during which time Chester grabbed all three of their goals. The first after 12 minutes came from a long ball over the top that a home midfielder ran on to, through the Dragons’ back four, before rounding Chris Maxwell and slotting the ball into the net.

Within another 6 minutes it was 2-0 when a corner from the right sailed over to the back post. Somehow the ball was kept in play and hooked back across goal where it was powerfully headed past Maxwell. The third came from a left-wing cross that was nodded down towards the penalty spot for an in-rushing forward to score with ease.

“We got exactly what we deserved,” Steve exclaimed. “I don’t mind players playing poorly or losing – but I won’t accept anything less than 100% effort from them and too many players didn’t do that. To not get that in a derby match was very embarrassing! They’re young lads, so they are going to lose and play poorly sometimes. But I won’t accept less than 100%. We had a couple of injuries but there’s no excuse. It was a bad day at the office. There was none of the desire or determination that’s been shown in the past.”
