Town boss Neil Aspin said his side were the better team despite going down 2-1 at promotion rivals Chester.

Town let in goals early in each half at the Exacta Stadium before a Jon Worthington rocket from 25 yards got them back into it.

But although they dominated for large periods of the game and created several good chances, they were unable to find an equaliser.

Aspin said: “I’m disappointed because I felt we deserved to win the game. We were the better team.

“We gave away two bad goals whihc has cost us the game but in general I thought our play was really good, especially in the first half.

“We passed the ball well, created a lot of chances and I don’t think the scoreline reflected the game.”

Aspin said that there were plenty of positives to take from the game, which leaves Town eight points behind Chester, Brackley Town and Guiseley, who all have 100 per cent records so far.

“Coming here and dominating for long periods is reassuring because it shows we can compete with anyone in the division and we could beat anyone in the division, but we’ve just got to make sure that when we’re on top like we were tonight that we win the game.”

“I’m disappointed to lose the game but not with the performance, there were a lot of positives from the performance tonight. I’m disappointed for the players because we didn’t get what we deserved tonight.”

“We can take those positives into all the games because we’ve shown tonight that we can play some good football.”
