With Danny Livesey suspended for this match Chester managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley opted to select Salford loanee James Jones to partner Simon Grand in the centre of the defence.

Once again Chester got off to a great start against a team lying one place below them in the table. The game was just two minutes old when Bradley Jackson racing down the right crossed the ball for Matty Hughes, he set up Akwasi Asante who couldn’t miss from a couple of yards out.

Kevin Roberts pulled up with a hamstring problem in the first ten minutes and was replaced by summer signing from Nantwich Town Jamie Morgan making his Blues debut.

Chester pushed for a second goal and almost got it through Asante who was unlucky to see a superb effort cannon back off a post. The Blues did double their lead though on 29 minutes as Morgan was upended in the box by Brad Nicholson and Asante crashed the resulting spot-kick past Lloyd Allinson, sending the Lions ‘keeper the wrong way.

Jones almost added a third just before the break but his header from a corner was cleared off the line by Reiss McNally.

The Blues were given a let-off early in the second per ion when Guiseley’s top scorer Aaron Martin shot over from inside the six yard box following a corner. Scott Garner was also guilty of missing a great chance for the visitors shooting high and wide after Russell Griffiths had partially cleared a free kick.

Chester scored their third goal on 71 minutes as Anthony Dudley took advantage of some slack defending before rushing through on goal and slotting the ball past Allinson.

Eight minutes from time Guiseley scored a consolation goal as Martin out-jumped Jones to head a corner past Griffiths. The dying minutes saw Allinson make two good saves to deny substitute George Waring and Dudley before the final whistle saw the Blues leave the pitch to a great reception from their fans.
