Ben Heneghan has sounded a warning to the Vanarama Conference that his team-mates are going to run riot sooner or later.
If the magical FA Cup win at Southend United demonstrated the Blues capabilities then the midweek defeat at Macclesfield Town highlighted one area requiring improvement.
Not for the first time this season, Chester received a lesson in the importance of taking their chances.
John Askey could not have complained if his side had gone into half time well behind but two goals inside 180 seconds left the Blues with another mountain to climb.
Heneghan got one back but not before Macc had added a third and the scale of the comeback proved too great for Steve Burr’s side.
It has been a common tale in the past couple of months with the Blues feeling hard done to after the defeats at Dover and Eastleigh, and the home draw with Welling.
Heneghan admits those dropped points have been frustrating but the 21-year-old thinks a little more luck and composure in front of goal is all that is missing.
Heneghan said: “We’ve had loads of chances at Macc and to be fair the keeper was on form and deserved to be man of the match but the football we are playing at the moment compared to when I started is on a different level now.
“We’re one touch, getting in between teams, splitting teams apart and we just need to start our finishing our chances really.
“As soon as we score one then I think we will be on top of teams and I think most teams will crumble and if we keep getting at them then we will get more and more goals.”
Attacking midfielder Sean McConville leads the scoring charts with six goals but centre forward Craig Hobson and full back Heneghan are close behind with four apiece.
Goalscoring defenders are rare but tend to fall into two brackets, set piece specialists in the Leighton Baines mould and those blessed with Heneghan’s aerial prowess.
Three of his four goals have been scored with his head, the other was his unforgettable late winner against Wrexham, and the former Everton trainee thinks he can keep up his impressive scoring run.
“To be honest I’ve not had my fair share of play so now I’m back playing regularly and I’m getting my goals that always a bonus for myself and I’m showing people what can I do,” said Heneghan.
“I think the delivery is what matters on the set pieces and if it’s on my head then I’ll attack it and I’ll back myself most times to score.”
Heneghan, who spent the past couple of seasons on the books of Stoke City, signed in mid-August after the natural centre half impressed on trial and has not looked back since being given his chance at right back, starting the last 15 games in league and FA Cup.
Chester, have a tough looking visit from third-placed Gateshead on Saturday (3pm) after four weeks on the road but a five-match unbeaten home run has given the squad confidence and Heneghan wants to keep that going.
He said: “Last weekend was a great win away at Southend in the FA Cup and on Tuesday we played well again but it wasn’t our night and the luck was in Macclesfield’s favour but the mood is good around the camp and we’ve got to take that into the next game.
“We like playing at home obviously with the fans behind us and that gives us a big boost so we are looking forward to it and we have got to redeem ourselves and get another win.”
