Full time: Runcorn 1 Chester 5

A comfortable success for the Blues thanks to goals from Horwood, James, White, Davies and Bell.

Bizarre

Metcalf seems to take a short goal kick, Bell passes it into the net. Everyone stops but ref gives the goal. Bizarre.

GOAL! Runcorn 1 Chester 5

Nyal Bell scores in bizarre fashion.

Headed over

Hannah and Bell link up with the latter nodding over from close range.

Good save

Trialist A down well to deny Exell from close range.

Superb strike

Davies with a stunning left foot effort from 25 yards. Fine strike.

GOAL! Runcorn 1 Chester 4

Smart save

Trialist keeper saves from Exell with his legs after being out through.

Wide

Tonight's attendance

Davies shoots wide

Skews an effort from 10 yards after good work from Chapell.

GOAL! Runcorn 1 Chester 3

Runcorn pull one back through substitute and ex Chester youth player Kevin Exell after breaking free and lifting over trialist keeper.

Searching

Joyce’s deep free kick almost finds Bell at the far post.

Tame

Second half kicks off

We’re back at it.

Second half skipper

Wade Joyce.

Second half line-up

Trialist A, Trialist B, Jones, Dobson, Downes, Chapell, Dawson, Joyce, Davies, Hannah, Bell.

The teams are back out

A new XI for the Blues.

Half time: Runcorn 0 Chester 3

Decent first 45 for the Blues as they lead through strikes from Horwood, James and White. Andy Halls impressive.

Wasted

Blues break quickly and Halls overlaps but his cross skews well over.

Tough surface

Bobbly pitch here at the Pavilions is causing problems when playing on the deck.

Can't make it count

Blues corner is whipped in by Turnbull but Runcorn eventually clear lines. 40 mins.

Well taken

Akintunde does well to chase down ball on byline and cuts back for White who shimmies and the fires past Metcalf from eight yards.

GOAL! Runcorn 0 Chester 3

Harry White makes it three from close range. 33mins

Great challenge

Halls watches the ball well to dispossess a lurking Cairns after Julian broke from midfield.

Close

Paul Turnbull fires a 25-yard free kick just wide of the upright.

Wide

Sebastian Julian volleys well wide from the corner.

Runcorn corner

A little bit of pressure from the home side.

Saved

Lynch gathers a tame Thelwell effort after he had beaten Rowe-Turner on left.
