Chester FC boss Jon McCarthy praised his side's 'professional' display as they ensured they headed into Christmas in seventh spot in the Vanarama National League after a 2-0 home win over Aldershot Town.
A goal either side of the break, first from Jordan Chapell and then from Man of the Match James Alabi, brought the Blues to within six points of the play-off places.
It was against Aldershot Town back in September that kick started Chester's superb run of form that has seen them lose just twice in 20 National League games, going the unbeaten in the last seven.
On that occasion they drew 0-0, but the Blues were more than good value for the three points at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium.
"I think that there will be a lot of other clubs in the league looking at that result and knowing how significant it is, and I think it is," said McCarthy.
"We are very evenly matched with Aldershot, we were on exactly the same points, they come to us and we win 2-0. I love 2-0 as a result. We keep a clean sheet and we go and score two goals and it's almost like the perfect professional result, and that's what we were.
"From the off, the way the lads prepared themselves, the way they set up, the structure, the game plan – they got it to the letter.
"We dealt with some dangerous players. I thought Luke George was outstanding against (Idris) Kanu and led the way and everybody seemed to build off that.
"We'll hang around (the play-off chasing teams) as long as we can, let's make things difficult."
Chester are next in action when they travel to Solihull Moors on Boxing Day (3pm) before welcoming Moors back at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium on New Year's Day.
