BOBBY Williamson praised his players for the style of football they demonstrated on Tuesday night.
In tough, blustery conditions Chester avoided the temptation to lump the ball forward, instead playing an expansive passing game which reaped a 3-0 victory for the Blues.
“The wind played havoc but credit to both sets of players,” said Williamson. “They tried to play the game properly and it was super from our point of view.
“I felt they started better than us and had us on back foot, but we got a goal the first time we went up the park from a great finish by Partridge. We scored three good goals and most importantly kept a clean sheet.
“The football was good. We try to encourage the players to get the ball down and they did that but credit to Barnet they knocked it about too and troubled us at times and they will win more than they will lose this season.”
The victory was confirmed by two Kevin Ellison strikes which came straight out of the top drawer.
“Ellison had an effort in the first half he’s hit on the volley and sent miles over,” said Williamson.
“Everyone had a little chuckle about that but when he catches them he catches them and the two goals he got really flew into the back of the net.”
