Here's how Chester FC reporter Jim Green rated the performance in Saturday's 3-2 defeat at home to Woking.

Jon Worsnop 7: Nothing he could do about the goals again, especially the winning strike. Kept busy in the second-half and the margin of defeat would have been more but for his outstanding save from Josh Payne's free kick. Through no fault of his own, the chances of him hitting his target for clean-sheets appear remote.

Ryan Higgins 6: Didn't look at all comfortable on the right of a five-man midfield, but not alone in struggling with the system. Woking found it too easy to get in behind him and it was no surprise when the manager reverted to a back four. Hadn't missed a minute of football since he joined the club so understandable he was taken off with a quarter of an hour to go.

Ben Heneghan 8: Fact he's the best hope of a goal at the moments underlines the problems in forward areas. Goal return is exceptional and talk of interest from Football League clubs will get louder if that continues. Credit to Steve Burr, he's unearthed a gem of a player and brought him on through the season.

Matty Brown 7: Decent return to the team for the skipper, who knows his role and does it with minimal fuss. Kept on top of Yemi Odubade, who can be a real handful. Solid, dependable and done enough to earn himself a new deal, although behind Heneghan and Michael Kay in the pecking order at present.

Kieran Charnock 5: Not a great afternoon. Made a reasonable start on the left edge of a back three, although an early yellow card would prove costly. Might have reacted quicker when Scott Rendell got to the ball first for Woking's opener and could have no complaints about the red card in the second-half, getting himself in trouble when he stumbled and dragged Kevin Betsy to the ground.

Craig Mahon 7: One player who can never be accused of putting his feet up for the season and his sheer persistence paid off with a goal at the end of the first-half, which kept the Blues in the game. Case probably not helped by switching positions so much but did well in the circumstances.

Kingsley James 7: Still not hitting the heights he did in the first half of the season but his performance was a step in the right direction up against an impressive Cards midfield. Teams have wised up to the Blues tactics of trying to get James as the free man and that's made it more difficult for him to influence games.

Brad Abbott 5: Substituted for the fourth game on the trot, this time withdrawn on the hour having been unable to make a mark on the game. Hasn't really built on the promise of his first few performances, although not easy to do that when the team as a whole are underperforming.

John Rooney 6: Hard to work out where he was playing in the first-half, and his performance reflected that. Woking's midfield restricted the space available well and that made life difficult.

Sean McConville 5: Pushed further forward to start with but looked out of place and never really able to find his way back into the game. With such a lightweight front two, the Blues needed to be sharp and careful in possession, which they weren't.

Matty Hughes 6: Didn't get much change out of Woking's big centre halves but would like to see him in a central role again, although probably needs to be alongside someone with more stature in a little and large combination.

Substitutes

Craig Hobson 6: Did a decent enough job after replacing Abbott, working hard and making a nuisance of himself.

Gareth Roberts 6: Brought on for Hughes following Charnock's red-card and slotted in well.

Michael Kay 5: Introduced for the final 15 minutes in place of Higgins and helped keep things tight, until Payne's stunning strike.
