CHESTER CITY continued their encouraging start to the season with victory at Gigg Lane last night.
City were good value for the points and only some stunning saves from home keeper Alan Fettis helped keep the score down.
Chester had the better of the opening exchanges, with Fettis making good saves to deny Laurence Wilson and Drewe Broughton.
City took the lead after 36 minutes through Spanish midfielder Roberto Martinez.
David Artell headed Wilson's corner back across goal and Martinez's deflected shot looped over Fettis.
Bury equalised just before the break through Jon-Paul Pittman, who capitalised on a mistake in midfield and burst through to fire past John Danby.
Three minutes into the second half City reclaimed the lead through the tireless Jon Walters.
A dreadful mix-up between Fettis and Challinor saw the ball squirm free for Walters to scramble it over the line.
Fettis then made a string of excellent saves to deny Broughton, Artell and Walters.
City wrapped up the points in injury time when Walters scored his second goal.
A break by Wilson saw the former Everton youngster slip the ball to the ex-Wrexham striker, who hammered it home from 15 yards.
Chester assistant boss Graham Barrow said: "I thought we were full value for the win, particularly in the second half when we controlled proceedings for long periods.
"It was good to see Roberto getting on the scoresheet. He is going to prove to be an excellent signing for this club."
Barrow, who was sacked as manager of the Gigg Lane club 11 months ago, reflected: "I made a lot of friends during my time here, but it is always nice to come back and gain a victory against one of your previous clubs."
