14 November 2009 05:27
Tamworth ended a run of six straight defeats in league and cup with victory over rock-bottom Chester.Neil Mackenzie fired the Lambs in front from 15 yards but on-loan striker Mark Beesley pulled Chester level with a cool finish from inside the box. [LNB]Gregg Blundell and Shaun Kelly then both wasted chances for the visitors. [LNB]And they were punished when debutant Simon Brown put the hosts back in front from close range before Nick Wright netted with a fierce left-foot drive. [LNB][LNB]Chester manager Jim Harvey told BBC Radio Merseyside:[LNB]"To come off with a 3-1 defeat is a bit baffling. I thought the boys were terrific. [LNB]"We played some first-class football and we dominated the game. But, for all our domination, when you create as many chances as we did, you've got to put them away. [LNB]"Once we equalised, we were so on top it looked like Tamworth were dead, that there was no fight left in them at all. [LNB]"But the boys were complaining that their second goal was offside, then it got a cruel deflection and it popped out to the lad who had pretty much an empty net."
