James Alabi was delighted as his impact from the bench inspired Chester FC to come from behind to draw with Kidderminster Harriers.

Alabi's stunning 75th minute equaliser secured an unlikely point at Aggborough after the Blues came in at half-time two goals down but battled back to earn a point with Ross Hannah also on target .

It was the 21-year-old's first goal for the club and crowed an impressive 45 minutes from the big forward, whose power and presence caused the Harriers no end of problems.

"When your a substitute and you come into a game you've got make sure you do something different and make an impact and happily I showed that," said Alabi afterwards.

"Obviously the manager wasn't happy at half-time because we were 2-0 down and he said that we needed to show more determination and hunger so I made sure that when I came on I provided that for the team."

Alabi signed for the Blues at the end of January on a deal until the end of the season but a groin strain picked up in training had restricted his impact.

Earlier this month assistant manager Jon McCarthy described how Alabi had 'wowed' his team-mates in training and predicted he would get the fans excited once he settled in and the former Stoke City and Ipswich Town striker backed up those claims against Kidderminster.

Picking up a pass on the edge of the area, Alabi held off the defence and opened up the space for a shot, curling the ball beyond a stationary Dean Snedker in the Harriers goal and into the top corner.

It was an outstanding finish and one that's almost certain to ensure Alabi starts against Tranmere Rovers this weekend.

Alabi said of his goal: "I just had to make sure that I held the ball and shielded it from the defender and when you've got the ball in the box as a striker and you've got space you've got to make sure you take the chance."

The point moved Chester up to 15th in the National League table, seven points clear of the bottom four.

Fourth-placed Tranmere visit the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium on Sunday (12 noon) and Alabi believes the manner of the draw with Kidderminster means the Blues go into the game with some momentum.

He said: "It was good as win because we went 2-0 down and to show the character we did to come back is only going to give us more motivation for the game against Tranmere."
