Maximum points from his first two games in charge have given new Blues boss Steve Burr cause to be optimistic.
But the pragmatic Scotsman won’t be getting carried away and says there is much work still to do to preserve Chester’s Skrill Premier status.
“It has been a great start and we want to enjoy the wins but I know how difficult this league is,” said the 54-year-old.
“There have been a lot of good signs that I have seen in my first two games. But we have got to take it one game at a time and we won’t worry about what teams around us are doing.”
Burr’s arrival has lifted the gloom that had fallen over the Swansway Chester Stadium following the drawn-out departure of former boss Neil Young.
He initially ruled himself out of the running to replace Young and said he planned to take time off having left Kidderminster Harriers after four years in charge.
But the offer of a contract until the end of the season led to a change of heart and the Blues’ snared the man regarded as one of the top bosses in non-league football. His appointment was confirmed shortly before the visit of Barnet on Saturday and Burr immediately took his place pitch-side.
He watched his new side claim a morale-boosting 2-1 win with Jamie Reed sliding home the decisive goal seconds after the Bees had levelled late on.
“It was quite a whirlwind and I didn’t meet any of the players until lunchtime,” said Burr.
“I‘m not someone who will watch from the stand and I was always going to be in the dugout.
“The welcome from the fans was great and Gary Jones made it very easy for me in terms of telling me about the players and what they are about.”
Burr, who lives near Lichfield, had little time to savour the three points with the Blues having to make a long trip to Woking on Tuesday evening. He will not take charge of his first training session until this evening.
“It was difficult not seeing the lads before Tuesday because that’s something I’ve been used to at Kiddy,” he said.
“We would normally have the players in on the Monday but with us being part-time the next time I saw the lads after the game on Saturday was on the way down to Woking.”
Jamie Menagh curled home the only goal in the first half to give Burr another three points as the Blues recorded back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.
Burr said: “The performance, the effort and the commitment was everything you would want.
“We created a number of chances which was very pleasing, more chances than we did against Barnet. If anything I'm just disappointed we didn’t get more than the one goal.
“We had numerous chances to increase the lead but three points is three points and it’s great to come down here and get a win.”
Burr was thrilled with the vocal support for his players at Woking, with about 150 fans making the trip.
He said: “It’s not an easy place to come to on a Tuesday but the support for the lads was great and they really do appreciate that.”
Burr, assistant manager Gary Jones and new first team coach Jon McCarthy will now prepare the Blues for a tough trip to Forest Green Rovers on Saturday (3pm).
So smooth has been the start to his managerial reign, Burr joked: “I’m thinking of retiring now and getting out while the going’s good.
“I hope we can build on it and give the fans something to cheer and get the feel-good factor back.”
