Jim Harvey praised matchwinner Mark Beesley after he collected his first win as Chester City manager against Gateshead on Saturday. Striker Beesley scored in the second half to leave Chester 22 points from safety in the Blue Square Premier. Harvey told BBC Radio Merseyside: "Mark's very intelligent and he can find space well. "He uses his intelligence and linked up with Anthony Barry and Clark Keltie. Some of their football was top draw." Harvey was pleased with the manner his players went about their work. "I thought they were excellent," he said. "In the first half their football was top class. "If we had have come in 3-0 up at half-time, that would have been a truer reflection of the performance. "But having taken the lead and going into the last 15 minutes, when they start to throw all the big boys down the middle and there is a bit of pressure going our way, we had to dig in and defend. "Then they showed great determination and character to make sure we didn't concede and come away with the win. There were some terrific individual performances."
