Chester FC manager Steve Burr was adamant it would have been an 'injustice' had his team not returned from FC Halifax Town with three points.
A deflected Jordan Chapell strike 10 minutes before half-time separated the teams at The Shay on Tuesday night as the Blues made it two wins from two.
However, the margin of victory could have been much greater had it not been for ex-Chester keeper Matt Glennon, who pulled off a string of important saves for Neil Aspin's men.
Burr said afterwards: "I thought we dominated the game. They had little spells in the second-half but Glennon has made some unbelievable saves for Halifax.
"With our first-half performance, I thought we should have got more goals and that was the only downside.
"It was a thoroughly professional performance and some of the football we played was excellent. I must congratulate Halifax on their pitch, it was a bowling green and a joy to play on."
Chester made one change from the 1-0 win at home to Braintree Town on the opening afternoon of the 2015-16 with Craig Mahon replacing Craig Hobson, who missed out with a swollen ankle.
Burr was pleased with the contribution of Mahon, who along with John Rooney and Jordan Chapell, had a licence to get forward with Luke George and Tom Shaw giving strong performances as holding midfielders.
Burr said: "We worked on something a little bit different from Saturday to get in behind their midfielders and in front of their back four, and it worked well with Mahon and Rooney doing that for us.
"Jordan Burrow had a good chance for them in the second-half which perhaps he would have disappointed with but all in all I think that would have been an injustice had we not got the three points.
"The midfield dominated the game. Tom Shaw and Luke George were immense in there and all round the park it was a throughly professional job.
"I couldn't really single anybody out because I thought everybody played very well."
