KEVIN Ellison has warned Peterborough that he is confident after his two-goal haul in midweek against Barnet and feels ready to show Chester fans his best.
“I am buzzing after those two goals,” he said. “The lads are trying to say the first one took a massive deflection but I am arguing that. The second one was a lot better though.”
Ellison has struggled with his form of late but boss Bobby Williamson has backed him and on Tuesday night Ellison repaid that faith, scoring the two goals which killed off Barnet. He now has his sights set firmly on gunning down the Posh.
“To be honest, I have not been happy with my own performances for four or five games.
“It’s not about me, it’s the team, but we’ve got the three points.
“I don’t know if I have been trying too hard. I will try to relax a bit more because it is eating away at me. I need to push on and the team needs to.
“We have to do it against Peterborough, who are flying. Christmas is a very busy period so to get the points on the table would be perfect.”
Ellison had the chance to grab a hat-trick towards the end of Tuesday’s match but his near-post free-kick was scrambled away by Barnet keeper Lee Harrison.
“I think I was unlucky not to get a hat-trick. I’m not being greedy though, two is great.
“It was an important result for the team.
“We have lost three on the bounce and drew in the derby so it was important to get the win.”
The left winger also revealed that there was some tension about Chester when they were leading 2-0.
“It is a horrible scoreline,” he said. “If they get one back then their tails are up and our backs are against the wall. It was important to get a third.
“Barnet scored four at Stockport so they are a dangerous side.
“For the first time at the Deva a team came here and played their own game rather than trying to stop us playing.
“The last couple of games people have put three in the midfield to stop me and Richie Partridge playing, but they were more interested in what they could do and it allowed our game plan to work.”
