CHESTER grabbed an early lead and looked the more effective outfit until Bangor improved in the second spell to deserve their late equaliser.
But in between, this not-so-friendly encounter will be remembered for some unsavoury incidents which brought a yellow card for Bangor's Paul Roberts and a ticking off for others from the referee.
Kevin Parry, of Llanfairpwll, was put under pressure in one incident when Bangor's Kenny Burgess was sent sprawling and the linesman flagged vigorously but no penalty was awarded.
Chester's opener after 13 minutes was opportunism by Steve Brodie, who met a clearance by goalkeeper Phil Priestley from outside his area by returning the ball into the empty net from 40 yards.
Bangor's equaliser came on 81 minutes when, after a short corner routine, captain Simon Davis floated over a centre for Lee Hunt to head on target from three yards at the far post.
