Chester manager Marcus Bignot made four changes to the side beaten by Guiseley on Boxing Day, as John McCombe, Andy Halls, Paul Turnbull and James Akintunde came in to replace James Jones, Tom Shaw the injured Ross Hannah and suspended Lathaniel Rowe-Turner who was sent off in the home match.

The Lions started the better but it was Paul Turnbull who had the first chance of the match in the opening ten minutes firing wide from 20 yards. James Akintunde saw two half efforts cleared before Rowan Liburd hit the crossbar with Sam Hornby well beaten after the home player had shrugged off a Ryan Astles challenge.

Roberts curled a free kick just over following a foul on the edge of the box by Harry White as the home side continued to press.

Astles thought he had given Chester the lead after he stabbed the ball home at the far post following an out swinging corner but his efforts was ruled out by the referee for a foul on ‘keeper Maxted.

On the hour mark the Blues did take the lead, Lucas Dawson’s through ball was held up by Akintunde who slipped a pass to Kingsley James to fire home into the bottom corner.

Hornby produced a great save to deny Mike Fondop's header with six minutes remaining as Guiseley put the Blues under pressure.

As the game entered stoppage time MacFadzeanv’s long throw into the box wasn’t cleared by the Blues defence and Ash Palmer was on hand to equalise from close range for the home side and deny Chester two crucial points.
