Jon McCarthy doesn’t think the weekend double header will determine his Chester future as the draw specialists need to find a first win
The manager has come in for some criticism this season following the Blues slower than hoped start to the new campaign.
Chester this weekend have matches away to Aldershot and at home Macclesfield Town.
But McCarthy doesn’t believe that a bad Bank Holiday will see a change made with two managers already losing their jobs in the National League.
“Of course, for yourselves in the media, you want to build this one up, I get that. But it’s not just this weekend for me, each game is pivotal,” the boss told the Chester Standard.
“I get the feeling, I get how it will be if things don’t go right this week, but I don’t want to be part of that.

“There’s a run of games after that, Torquay and Solihull, it’s those games that are pivotal to us in terms of hitting our targets for the first 10 games.”
He added: “There’s teams in this league, Wrexham, Tranmere, they’ve lost more than us already. There’s a pattern there with my teams about how we have to be.
“We might drawn four or five in a row but then if we back that up with two wins, it’s a good set of results.
“Everyone has played one more than us, that hasn’t been fair, but it brings us together and makes us stronger. If we get that right then everything we’ve done so far becomes the right things.”
