BERNARD MORLEY praised the reaction of his players by coming from behind to beat Spennymoor Town - but he admits the Blues can't keep conceding the first goal.

Chester are in the hat for today's FA Cup fourth qualifying round draw after registering a 3-1 win over their National League North rivals at The Deva Stadium on Tuesday.

The Moors took an early lead but Chester, who also trailed against Leamington in the league on Saturday before sealing a 3-2 victory, equalised before the break through Jamie Morgan.

In-form striker Danny Elliott put the Blues ahead from the penalty spot early in the second half and George Waring scored a third goal in the 81st minute to send Morley and Anthony Johnson's side through.

Morley was pleased that the Blues didn't let the early blow affect them but he had words of warning.

"That's twice in two games where we have gone 1-0 down but this side doesn't panic anymore," Morley told reporters after the match.

"We back ourselves to get back in the game.

"How long we can continue to do that, I don't know, because you can't keep doing that every week going 1-0 down.

"A sloppy start to the game and we gave ourselves a mountain to climb but again, we didn't panic.

"We got the ball down, enjoyed a lot of possession, they sat off us and let us to play which is criminal at home to allow us to do that.

"We got our joy and got back in the game. Before you know it, it was 2-1.

"Then we soaked up pressure for 15 minutes in the second half, hit them on the counter, got a corner and scored. Game done."

Chester continued their 100 per cent start to the campaign, winning all four league and cup games.

"Managers say that they will take anyone at home but it could have been a little bit easier for us, Spennymoor are a great side," said Morley.

"Another win and on paper it is a great start to the season. We believe we a good side."

Morley is hoping for another home tie when today's draw is made.

"We have not had great success over the last couple of years in the FA Cup," added Morley.

"I would love it to be at home but we are fortunate to be in the FA Cup.

"Let's enjoy it and whoever it is, it is, we go and have a go."
