NOT for the first time this season Chester City had to come from behind at the Deva Stadium to collect three more points in their quest for the Nationwide conference title.
It was another hesitant performance from City against a modest Burton side, but in the end they were worthy winners and Albion could have no complaints.
Nigel Clough's outfit must have thought it was going to be their day when Robbie Talbot lobbed them into the lead on eight minutes following nervy defending by Phil Bolland and Scott Guyett which put goalkeeper Iain Turner in trouble.
But after 33 minutes Daryl Clare scored his customary goal when he touched in a hard, low cross from man of the match Kevin McIntyre.
And three minutes later City were in the lead when Guyett met an Alex Smith cross to head firmly past Matt Duke.
Chester keeper Turner had to make a fine save from Jon Howard just before the break to keep Chester in front, but in the second half he had little to do as Chester took control.
Clare and Darryn Stamp missed good chances to have increased the lead, but in the 70th minute Clare put the points safe with a well-taken goal from a Smith pass.
Chester: Turner, Collins, Guyett, Heard, Bolland, Carden, McIntyre, Williams (Carey 45), Clare, Smith, Stamp. Subs: Rapley, Davies, Lane, Twiss.
