CALUM MCINTYRE was pleased with the point gained from a 2-2 draw at Blyth Spartans on Saturday.

However, the Chester boss was also able to reflect on a number of spurned opportunities from his side.

Declan Weeks and Harrison Burke's fine volley made sure of a point for Chester to keep them in the play-off positions.

McIntyre told Chester FC TV: "I think you're always pleased with a point on the road.

"This is a tough place to come. I think a lot of  top sides have found that already this season.

"So, for us, we've got to be pleased with taking one point that gets us closer to where we want to be and working towards a points target, especially over this Christmas period.

"That said, we've created so many opportunities and, look, you've got to be really pleased with that, because I don't think we have, if I'm honest, in the last sort of three or four games.

"We created two really good chances last week, but not enough.

"We've not controlled a game like that in possession for some time."

Chester are next in action at home to Warrington Town on Boxing Day.
