Watch: Chester FC manager Steve Burr 'delighted' with Kidderminster Harriers victory

Blues boss hopes win over his former club can act as a platform to climb National League ladder

Steve Burr said Chester FC's performance in the 3-1 defeat of Kidderminster Harriers reflected what he wanted his team week in, week out.

Despite falling behind in the 40th minute to a Kelvin Langmead goal, the Blues controlled the game to run out deserved winners .

Ross Hannah equalised three minutes after the Harriers had gone ahead and John Rooney fired Burr's men into the lead 33 seconds after the restart.

Chester could have wrapped up the three points sooner but had to wait until eight minutes from the end when Hannah slotted in his second after Rooney's shot had been saved.

Following the game, Burr said: "That reflected how I want my team to play and I was delighted with the performance tonight and the energy we showed going forward.

"I thought we played some really good stuff and that's what I want to see and I know happy the fans will be with that tonight.

"We're always at our best when we're playing at a tempo and the tempo was there tonight and as I say some of our passing was very good.

"But I did say as well that we've got everybody back fit now and we have got a decent squad and hopefully now we can use this as a platform to kick on and go up the table but I'm delighted with the performance.

"I thought we went behind against the run of play really and should have been in front. We created a number of chances, their keeper has made some good saves but it was nice to get the win."
