from behind to beat Bradford (Park Avenue) 5-3.
Avenue took the lead as early as the fourth minute
only for Dan Mooney to restore parity two minutes
later. On 12 minutes fine work from Simon Grand
wet up Anthony Dudley who header Chester into a
2-1 lead. Matty Hughes and Mooney went close before
Craig Mahon scored the third just after the half
hour. The visitors pulled a goal back moments before
half-time as Jake Beesley, son of former Chester
defender Paul, shook off a shaky Chester defence
to score from close range.
Eight minutes into the second half Bradford drew
level with Oli Johnson bundling the ball home. Chester
restored their lead on 74 minutes with a superb
through ball from mahon finding Mooney who curled
a shot into the bottom corner of the goal. Ten minutes
from time Luke Jordan came on for his debut and
the youngster won a penalty in added time that was
concerted for Dudley to seal the three points.
