Full time: Lincoln City 1 Chester FC 0

A huge win for the home side edges them closer to the title. Chester better than the weekend but still second best.

Bad tempered

Dave Felgate gets a talking to from the ref after a bit of a to do on the bench.

What a save!

Farman outstretched to superbly hold a fine Durrell effort from 30 yards.

10 men v 10 men

That looked a bad challenge from here on Wood. Richards reckless.

Red card Richards

Awful tackle on Wood.

Added time

SEVEN minutes!

Blues free kick

30 yards out. Chance for a decent delivery.

Astles up top

The big man has moved up front to partner Alabi.

Chester subs

Hunt and Dawson on for Lloyd and Joyce. 87 mins.

This has made the home fans happy

Wasteful

Richards does well to fashion space for a cross but then checks back on himself and tries to throw himself to the ground to win a penalty. Lincoln bench incensed.

Cleared

Astles gets a firm head to it and away it goes.

Lincoln corner

Comes off Lloyd.

Red card Lincoln!

Three minutes after coming on, Power is sent off for awful challenge on George.

Imps sub

Alan Power on for Elliott Whitehouse - 72 mins.

Cleared

Durrell corner headed away as far as Lloyd but he heads the ball out of play when looking for Durrell again.

Lincoln sub

Josh Ginnelly on for Billy Knott - 67 mins.

Imps yellow

Woodyard booked for foul on George.

Chester sub

Theo Vassell on for Blaine Hudson. 66 minutes.

Hudson down

Defender gets injured and is just off the pitch. Rolls back on to jeers from the home faithful.

Good pressure

Sean Raggett clears a goalbound Alabi effort off the line. Best move of the match from Chester involving Richards, Lloyd, Durrell and Alabi.

Better energy

Chester are chasing the ball down with a bit more purpose at the moment. Managed to push the Imps back.

Lincoln in control

Chester penned in a bit here as Lincoln keep pressing. Struggling to get out of their own half.

First half action
