Bignot delighted as Chester move out of drop zone

Marcus Bignot hailed a 'massive' three points for Chester as his side dragged themselves out of the National League relegation zone with victory over Barrow.

Tuesday night's 3-2 win, sealed with a dramatic 94th minute winner from Lucas Dawson, prompted wild scenes of celebration on and off the pitch at the Deva, and enabled Bignot to achieve his first goal since taking over of hauling his faltering side out of the bottom four, overtaking managerless Barrow in the process.

"When I came in we looked at the first group of five matches and we wanted to be out of the bottom four after those games and we've achieved that," said Bignot, who now turns his attentions to a trip to Maidstone United on Saturday.

"A performance like this and the result, the manner of it, it puts us in good stead.

"I really did enjoy it. I thought first-half we were superb and we were worthy of a 2-0 lead, but obviously we will learn about the management of games, especially the last five minutes of the half.

"But the second half was all about character and to create the chances we did so late on I don't think anyone could argue we weren't deserving of the three points."
