Chester FC boss Steve Burr says that the goal-scoring burden cannot rest solely on Ross Hannah's shoulders.

The Blues boss watched his talismanic striker take his season tally to 12 and extend his current run of form to eight in eight games on Saturday as Hannah's brace fired Chester into the second round of the FA Trophy with a 2-0 win at AFC Telford United.

But while pleased with the form of 29-year-old Hannah, Burr admitted that goals must start to come from other areas, with John Rooney's strike against Kidderminster Harriers on November 10 being the last time anyone other than Hannah had managed to find the target.

"That's what you want but we were just talking about it (in the dressing room) and we were asking who was the last other person to score for us?," said Burr, whose side have been handed a home tie against Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division side Hungerford Town in round two.

"We need people to chip in from other areas.

"Again (on Saturday) we should have increased the score when we had other opportunities, but it is nice that Ross scored and I was hoping he was going to get a hat-trick. I felt it was going to be the day when he was going to get is hat-trick. I thought his two first-half goals were real quality finishes."

And the need for others to help shoulder the burden is something that Hannah himself agrees needs to happen if the Blues are to enjoy a positive second half of the season, and the ex-Grimsby Town man points at set pieces as being a key area, with Ben Heneghan and Ian Sharps only netting once between them all season.

"I think that they will be the first to admit that we don't score enough from set pieces," said Hannah.

"The deliveries from Rooney and Chaps (Jordan Chapell) have been fantastic and we should be scoring more goals, but I'm sure that will come.

"I think we've only scored one (from a set piece) and that was Ben (Heneghan) against Eastleigh. But we do work on the training ground and we keep working on it but I'm sure one will drop in and we will start scoring from set pieces."
