During the early weeks of this season there was much talk about the defensive frailties of Chester FC .
The Blues conceded three goals in four of their opening seven matches in the National League this campaign and even the most positive of Chester fans may not have believed that the club would go on to enjoy such a fine defensive record in the weeks that followed.
Saturday's 1-0 win over Torquay United extended Chester's unbeaten run to seven games without conceding a goal and brought them to within four points of the play-off places and leaves them 14 points above the drop zone.
The Blues travel to Southport this weekend for an FA Cup fourth qualifying round clash that will pit Chester boss Jon McCarthy with former Blues manager Steve Burr, now in the hot-seat at Haig Avenue.
So where do Chester stand in the club's all-time record list and how much longer do they have to go to break it?
Saturday's shut out means Chester have now gone 668 minutes without conceding a goal, a record that leaves them second in the all-time list, surpassing Grenville Millington's 590 minutes set in Division Four during the 1974/75 season.
They have a little way to go to beat the current record set by the 2011/12 team and goalkeeper John Danby, though.
Danby went 781 minutes without conceding in the Evo-Stik Premier Division during the promotion-winning campaign.
That means that the current Blues crop and 'keeper Liam Roberts will have to shut out Southport on Saturday and go 24 minutes without conceding against York City the following weekend to rewrite history.
