The Deva Stadium, Blues hope to make this a fortress after first win of 2009

Chester City manager Mick Wadsworth was delighted to get his first victory at the Blues following their 2-0 success over Histon on Saturday.  The victory was Chester’s first at home since Boxing Day 2008.

“I think its great, it’s just good for everyone,” said Wadsworth in his post match press-conference. “It’s about time we did something which gives us a bit of cheer on a Saturday – we’ve been close a couple of times.”

“It was a really difficult game,” the former Gretna manager continued. “We were stoic and courageous in our defending and if you look, they [Histon] had a lot of ball but not too many chances. “At times I was really pleased as we played some clever and good football at times. We weren’t at our best on the ball but I think it’s difficult in a game like that.

“So I’m just delighted to win.” 

Chester City still remain rooted to the bottom of the Blue Square Premier League but have reduced their arreas to minus 20 points, giving the Deva Stadium’s long suffering followers a glimmer of hope in the race of premier league survival this term.
