WATCH: Chester FC's four-goal demolition of Lincoln City

Relive Tuesday's resounding win for the Blues over the Imps

No wonder Chester FC boss Steve Burr was purring after the 4-0 victory over Lincoln City.

A slick performance by his new-look team, featuring a host of January signings, completely demolished the Imps at the Swansway on Tuesday evening.

Burr reckoned it was the best display he had seen from the Blues since he took over from Neil Young a little over a year ago. He did not want the fact Lincoln had Todd Jordan and Alan Power sent-off to detract from the quality of Chester's display.

"Let's no mistake about it, I hope Lincoln don't use the fact they were down to 10 men and then nine men because the first-half performance was as good as we've had here," said Burr.

"Some of the attacking play was excellent and I was just disappointed that they did get people sent off because you can easily say 'well you've scored four against Lincoln and they're down to nine men' but with 10 men, 11 men and they could have had 12 men on the park in the first-half as far as I'm concerned.

"Our performance was excellent and some of the chances that we created we should have had more really but that's the type of football that gets me excited and it was a pleasure to watch."

Chester stormed into a 3-0 lead after just 35 minutes, thanks to goals by John Rooney, Sean McConville and Ryan Higgins. On-loan midfielder Brad Abbott added a fourth after the break to round off an emphatic win.
