IT’S all about winning games and giving 100 per cent for Chester interim assistant boss Simon Grand.

The central defender, who is helping out Danny Livesey as the Blues board look to appoint a successor to Bernard Morley and Anthony Johnson,stressed it doesn’t matter if that’s from the field of play or on the touchline at the Deva.

Grand, whose side head to Spennymoor Town tomorrow, told the Chester YouTube channel: “I enjoy winning and that’s the big thing for me and whether it’s me and Danny that are doing it as going on doing what Bern and Johnno have started or whether we’re doing it as players on the pitch, we’ve always given 100 per cent in the last four years to this club to win.

“We got brought here by Bern and Johnno to get promotion at this club and now, in whatever capacity that may be - whether it’s us doing it from on the touchline or whether that’s us doing it on the pitch - it will always be 100 per cent and that’s the only thing that matters.”

Asked if he was interested in taking over on the touchline full time with interim boss Danny Livesey, Grand added: “Again, as long as we’re winning, that’s all that matters.

“So as long as we can go out there and contribute to winning, in whatever format that is, that’s all that’s important to us because that’s what we got brought to the club to do and we’ve been here for four years and we want nothing more than this club winning every week.”

Speaking after the last gasp success over Leamington where defender James Horsfield (pictured above) hit the winner, Grand stressed: “Straight away we’re thinking Spennymoor.

“What we’re going to do, how we’re going to win.

“If that’s us in charge at Spennymoor, it’s us in charge at Spennymoor.

“If it’s not, again we’re preparing as best we can to make sure we go out there and win games.”

Chester have seen loan striker Charlie Jolley return to Tranmere Rovers this week but they’ll be looking to build on last week’s last-gasp win and keep their hopes of making the play-off alive.

The Blues are four points off seventh spot - occupied by Southport after their 2-0 win at Guiseley on Tuesday.
