CHESTER City bounced back from their FA Cup setback to collect three more Conference points.
Steve Mungall's side travelled to last year's Conference runners-up and extended their unbeaten league run to four games three of which they have won.
Blues goalkeeper Wayne Brown produced a dazzling display to deny Carl Orford and Nick Crittenden and keep City in the game when Telford were pressing for an opening goal.
But the difference between the sides was Chester top scorer Mark Beesley who hammered home a cross from Mike Rose at the far post on 21 minutes.
At the end of a game in which Chester were, for the most part, under the cosh, Yeovil's manager Barry Johnson kept his players locked in the dressing room for more than an hour.
But a delighted Steve Mungall summed it up in one brief sentence: 'We had Mark Beesley and they didn't.'
City, who had Chris and Michael O'Brien back after missing the Cup match at Barrow, showed all the battling qualities that were missing at Holker Street, and although they conceded a lot of territory to the home side they defended stoutly and were backed by an inspired keeper in Brown.
