STANLEY boss John Coleman will up his search for a centre half in the transfer window after his side threw away a lead twice to record their first home draw of the season.
The Reds boss was furious after £85,000 record signing Ian Craney and Roscoe Dsane both put Stanley ahead before City pegged them back.
"If you concede three goals at home you do not deserve anything," he slammed. "The defending was diabolical and I have to take the blame.
"We have worked week in and week out to get it right and it is disappointing to conceded three goals as easily as we did.
"It is rank bad defending and the whole team has to take responsibility. It has got to be that the personnel are not good enough.
"I have hit a new level of disappointment."
Chester took the lead on nine minutes after Paul Linwood was unmarked at the far post to set up Chris Holroyd for an easy tap in.
Andy Procter continued his recent goalscoring spree with a 38th minute equaliser before Craney hooked the ball into the empty net on 62 minutes.
However the lead only lasted six minutes before Lawrie Wilson found the top corner of the net.
Stanley thought they had sealed a much-needed home win after eight losses at the FES when Roscoe Dsane headed home a Craney corner.
But Holroyd had an easy tap in 12 minutes from time to secure a point for the visitors.
"We have some really good players at the club but there is no point having good players if we can't defend," added Coleman.
A mixed Stanley team will take on Preston on Tuesday night at Deepdale in the Lancashire Senior Cup (ko 7pm).
