Full time: Chester 2 Lincoln 5

The unbeaten run is over in the league and the result did flatter the visitors but the Imps were full value for the points. The challenge now is to make sure they don’t crumble after such a loss.

Added time

FIVE minutes. Why?

Sums up the second half

Chapell gets off a shot from 18 yards but it trickles wide. This one’s done.

Off the bar

Hughes gets to the byline and pulls it back for Richards whose first time effort crashes off the upright.

GOAL! Chester 2 Lincoln 5

Harry Anderson makes it safe. Really poor defending. 83 mins

That's that

Muldoon picks up a loose ball off Hunt and breaks from his own half, playing a one-two with Rhead before firing past Lynch. Comfortable for them now.

GOAL! Chester 2 Lincoln 4

Jack Muldoon - 81 minutes

Turned down

Lincoln bench bouncing after Muldoon hits the deck under a Lynch challenge. Looked like the Chester keeper won the ball first.

Lincoln sub

Whitehouse for Power. 76 mins.

Glorious chance

Should be 4-2. Muldoon breaks and goes one on one with Lynch, blasts wide from an angle.

Ridiculous

The ref has been woeful today. Ignores a pulled shirt offence on Richards. His shirt is actually ripped. Joke.

Lost its spark

Neither side really threatening at the moment. Lincoln seem content to just shut out the Blues now. Chester struggling to find inroads.

Chester change

Oluwaseun Akintunde on for James Alabi - 67 minutes.

Lincoln sub

Theo Robinson off, Jack Muldoon on. 64 mins.

Just wide

Woodyard finds room to float in a cross to Rhead who nods just wide.

Chester sub

Richards on for Mahon. 60 mins.

Wasted

Short free-kick from Durrell to Lloyd whose quick ball can’t find Chapell.

Chester free kick

25 yards out after Mahon fouled.

Way over

Theo Robinson blazes over unmarked from 12 yards. Glorious chance for Lincoln.

Great save

Lloyd’s low free-kick to Shaw on the edge of the box sees the latter fire through a sea of bodies and Farman does superbly well to save.

Lloyd back well

Chapell lost the ball in his own half allowing Lincoln to break two-on-two but Lloyd back well to snuff out danger.

Well over

Tom Shaw’s volley from a cleared ball flies well over from 18 yards.

GOAL! Chester 2 Lincoln 3

Ball in from a free kick is punched by Lynch as far as Rhead who finishes expertly from 12 yards.

Early pressure

Sam Hughes does well on the overlap with Chapell and squares to Lloyd whose through ball deflects out to Hughes whose effort can’t find a way through the bodies.

Second half under way

Lincoln kick us off.

Blues are back out

Big 45 coming up.

Half time: Chester 2 Lincoln 2

The Blues pegged back just before the break as Lincoln make their physical presence at set pieces felt. Good first 45, though, and plenty to be positive about.

GOAL! Chester 2 Lincoln 2

Sean Raggett heads home after Rhead nodded corner across goal

Lincoln corner

Deep free-kick headed out by Hudson.

Added time

Minimum of two minutes.
