RED CARD! Rowe-Turner sent off!

Reckless challenge on James Roberts. 2-0 down and down to 10 men. Merry Christmas.

Offering nothing

A bit of pinball in the Guiseley box but Chester are struggling to get beyond the halfway line, here. Just as they were on Saturday.

Blues so poor

Fans are rightly furious. Limp and shapeless from Chester so far. Dreadful.
