Having claimed a superb 4-0 home success over Sutton United on Saturday, Bank Holiday Monday in Woking was to prove an entirely different affair for Chester FC .
The Blues were on the wrong end of a 3-1 verdict at the Laithwaite Community Stadium as goals from Kieran Murtagh, Joey Jones and Chiegozie Ugwu sealed a comfortable success for Garry Hill's men.
Here's how the players fared.
JON WORSNOP – 6/10
Not an awful lot he could have done to prevent the goals and a couple of decent stops but the communication between him and the backline wasn't there.
EVAN HORWOOD – 6/10
Deployed in an unfamiliar right back role owing to Theo Vassell's injury sustained on Saturday, Horwood tried his best but looked increasingly frustrated. Picked up a fifth yellow of the season which sees him banned for Saturday's home clash with Forest Green Rovers.
RYAN ASTLES – 6/10
Won a lot of headers that came his way but the defensive unit as a whole was pulled from pillar to post, especially in the first half.
BLAINE HUDSON – 5/10
Superb on Saturday against Sutton, Hudson struggled against the Cards and was caught flat footed with long balls over the top on more than one occasion. Brought off at half time.
JOHNNY HUNT – 5/10
An afternoon to forget for Hunt, deployed in the left back slot. He was given a torrid time in the opening 45 minutes as Jake Caprice ran him ragged and found joy time and time again. Another brought off at half time.
JORDAN CHAPELL – 6/10
Looked bright early doors but was stymied in his efforts to make anything happen. Played right back for a spell and worked hard for the cause with little reward.
RYAN LLOYD – 7/10
Energetic as ever, Lloyd always looked to drive play forward and rarely wasted possession. A good header to level the game in the first half. He is a major plus for the Blues.
LUKE GEORGE – 6/10
Worked hard and tried to get in the thick of it but it was a game that passed the Chester midfield by. Did a decent job when employed as an emergency centre back.
TOM SHAW – 6/10
Excellent against Sutton, Shaw couldn't make an impression in the game, with long, aimless balls from the back not helping matters.
KANE RICHARDS – 6/10
Always puts the most work of anyone on the park. It was a thankless task against the Cards, though, as long balls saw him constantly isolated.
JAMES ALABI – 6/10
Tried early doors to make his presence felt on his return. Missed a gilt-edged chance in the first half and drifted out of the game as it wore on.
ELLIOTT DURRELL – 6/10
Struggled to get on the ball but did put some inviting deliveries into the box when he did.
SAM HUGHES – 6/10
Hughes did his best to impose himself on the contest but Chester grew more and more furstrated as the second half wore on.
JAMES AKINTUNDE – 6/10
Brought on to try and have the same kind of impact that he did at Barrow, Akintunde didn't see much of the ball and was kept quiet.
