DANNY LIVESEY is striving for greater consistency as Chester aim to kick-start their National League North campaign.

Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley's side have had an indifferent start to the season, picking up three wins, three draws and five defeats from their 11 games.

Although they haven't lost successive games, Chester are yet to string back-to-back wins together and go into Saturday's game against high-flying Boston United sitting 14th in the table.

Livesey feels the Blues have not always got what they have deserved from matches but the 36-year-old centre-back knows more wins are needed.

"It's strange, we seem to be putting performances together and not getting results," said Livesey.

"Then other times we are not playing well and nicking results.

"It is all about consistency. We don't feel like we are a million miles away from it.

"I know we went to York and got beat 1-0 but we were outstanding.

"We just need to put the result and a performance together, then you are off and running and confidence comes back.

"As a group we have got to put back-to-back wins together."

Livesey hopes putting some wins together can be the catalyst to get Chester heading in the right direction.

"You have got to start somewhere and if you can put back-to-backs wins together, you never know where it can take you," said Livesey.

"We need to do it sooner rather than later.

"We can't carry on winning one, losing two, winning one, losing one. It is all about consistency.

"Some of the performances, we deserved to be beaten but the ones that really hurt are where we have played well and still not got anything.

"That's where we need to try and change that mindset."

Boston know how to put a winning run together with the Pilgrims heading to Chester on the back of four successive league victories.

Former Blues striker Danny Elliott has helped fire Boston up to fourth in the standings but Livesey says Chester are ready to meet the challenge head on when the sides face off at The Deva this weekend.

"Boston are a good side, I think they are full-time and got a massive budget," added Livesey.

"They are really going for it this year and doing really well.

"We know how hard it is going to be and they have got Danny Elliott who was with us last year.

"He is on something like 12 goals and really flying so we know it is going to be a tough challenge but the boys are ready."
