READ | Declan Weeks speaks to The Cestrian Programme

Chester FC midfielder Declan Weeks has been speaking to The Cestrian Programme ahead of the weekend.

Tuesday’s draw with Alfreton means the Blues’ last six games have ended level, a run last encountered back in the 1986/87 campaign.

But Weeks knows these results, whilst keeping a lengthy unbeaten run going, are not quite good enough for the team to reach its targets for the season.

He said: “Another late goal right at the end, we’re that type of group. We’ll always battle for each other and always got our backs, we’ve shown that time and time again.

“But the frustration is we were comfortably in the play-offs and now with all these draws, especially at home, we’re in a position where we have to go again and start winning games sooner rather than later.

“We’re trying so hard to do that. We’re going through a bit of a bad patch at the minute, but we will get out of this and soon get right back to form.”

Spennymoor Town are the weekend visitors, with Calum McIntyre’s men as focused as ever to turn draws into wins as quickly as possible to continue their push within the top seven.

“We’re unbeaten but we’re not happy,” said Weeks.

“We’ve dropped below our standards and drawn too many games. Saturday is another chance to put it right and another chance at home too.

“We’ve shot ourselves in the foot too many times now, we’re chasing games, and teams have clawed points back on us.

“Now we have to go and get the points, it’s the type of challenge I’m sure we can rise to because we’re that kind of group. Hopefully we can get a big three points.”
