Steve Burr did not taste defeat in three visits to Tamworth as Kidderminster Harriers manager, recording two wins and a draw.

Six weeks into life with Chester FC, the 54-year-old would love to extend that record at the Lamb Ground tonight (7.45pm).

Cliché it might be but it's difficult not to escape using the term 'six-pointer' when assessing the importance of the game.

Second-bottom Tamworth are three points behind the Blues - who sit one place above the relegation zone - with a game in hand.

Heading into the final quarter of the season, the survival scrap is becoming increasingly tight with six clubs fighting to avoid filling the three relegation berths, with Hyde looking consigned to the drop.

Burr sensibly refuses to be drawn on points targets, preferring to focus solely on the next game but he will know how crucial a win tonight could be.

"Tamworth are fighting for their lives and I watched them a couple of weeks back and I know how difficult it is to go to there and get a win," he said.

"But it's been quite a happy hunting ground for me over the years and hopefully that will be the case on Tuesday."

Chester go into the game on the back of the 1-1 draw with Lincoln City on Saturday.

Delano Sam-Yorke put the hosts ahead on 16 minutes but on-loan striker Matty Taylor levelled seven minutes into the second half and the Blues created more than enough chances to win the game.

Tamworth drew 1-1 at home to Welling United last time out, but have now gone six games without a win.

Matt Godden got the Lambs goal having joined on loan from Scunthorpe United and will be one to keep an eye on tonight, as will ex-Chester City striker Nick Chadwick.

With both sides desperate for points Burr accepts some players might be feeling the tension, which could lead to a few nerve-jangling moments.

"I suppose it's natural," he said.

"We want to do so well and make sure we stay in this division and you can see how hard the players are working so you are going to get that.

"You're going to get mistakes because the pressure is on you to win and that comes with the situation we are in."

Burr wants his players to build on the win over Halifax and the draw at Lincoln, believing that a run of games without defeat would go some way to easing that pressure.

"I stressed to the lads that we need to put some consistency into our performances," he said.

Burr has been pleased with the progress made since taking charge but has identified areas of improvement, particularly in dealing with balls into the box and retaining possession.

"Things where we don't help ourselves is when we give the ball away cheaply or a basic long throw is causing us problems

"We've got to deal with things like that if you are going to be successful. Little things like that are giving ourselves a bit of a mountain to climb and we are giving goals away."

Although his side were poor in the first period at Sincil Bank, Burr has taken plenty positives from the second half showing and the dramatic 2-1 win over FC Halifax Town in the previous league game.

"There were good signs from the Halifax game and we produced a lot better second half performance at Lincoln to get to those levels that we're looking for," he said.

"I felt we should have got three points but we didn't and we move on now to Tuesday at Tamworth and look to get three there."
