Bromley 2 Maidstone 0

Dover 1 Dagenham & Redbridge 2

Guiseley 1 Chester 1

North Ferriby 1 Gateshead 0

Tranmere 1 York 0

Fair result

A hard-earned point for the Blues and one Guiseley certainly deserved. They look a better team than their lowly placing suggests.

FULL-TIME Guiseley 1 Chester 1

A point for the Blues. But they will not be happy with the referee’s two big penalty decisions.

What a run

But Jordan Chappell’s lung-busting burst from inside his own half is ended cynically by Lions captain Danny Lowe, who is rightfully booked.

Lynch keeps the Blues level

The keeper diving to his left to prevent Jake Cassidy’s angled shot from hitting the bottom corner. 88 minutes on the clock.

What a tackle

Ryan Astles denies Jake Cassidy a certain goal after Elliott Durrell lost the ball in his own box.

And another one

But this time for Guiseley with Danny East seeing a strike deflect just wide.

Good chance

Tom Shaw plays the ball through to Jordan Chappell. He’s going away from goal but he will he should have done better than sliced his shot past the post.

Second Chester change

Craig Mahon is replaced by Jordan Chappell. We’re in the 76th minute.

Blues struggling...

... to get out of their half. Guiseley coming on strong again. 15 minutes of normal time remaining.

Off the line!

Blaine Hudson heads off the line from Alex Purver after Alex Lynch came racing off his line.

No penalty!

Craig Mahon goes down under a challenge in the box from Connor Brown. It looked a penalty - but the ref is having none of it. Mahon not booked for diving, either.

Decent chance

But Sam Hughes volleys over. Not easy, but still should have kept it down.

First Blues change

Wade Joyce has come on for Kane Richards.

Take a bow

Blaine Hudson blocks behind a goal-bound effort from Jake Cassidy. Fine defending.

First caution

Alex Purver for a poor foul on James Alabi.

Under the cosh

The Blues are on the back foot here.


Simon Walton sent Alex Lynch the wrong way from the spot after Johnny Hunt was adjudged to have tripped Connor Brown. Hunt thought Brown dived.

GOAL Guiseley 1 Chester 1

Simon Walton (pen) 52 mins.

Penalty Guiseley

The Lions have a chance to level.

All day

Alex Purver drags a 20-yard shot wide of the post. Never troubling Alex Lynch.

Second half kicks-off

We’re back under way.

He certainly is

Fingers crossed

If results stay the same, Chester will finish the day in seventh in the table.

Aldershot 1 Boreham Wood 0

Bromley 1 Maidstone 0

Dover 0 Dagenham 2

Guiseley 0 Chester 1

North Ferriby 1 Gateshead 0

That was James Alabi’s fourth goal in four games and his seventh of the season - and that means he is now Chester’s leading marksman.

HALF-TIME: Guiseley 0 Chester 1

James Alabi’s special strike the difference at the break.

Added time

There’ll be three more minutes.
