Chester moved fifth and extended their unbeaten run to eight matches with this deserved home victory over Hereford.


The Blues started well and on ten minutes they had their first sight of goal as Dan Mooney’s 20-yarder flew inches wide of Martin Horsell’s post.

Marlon Jackson saw an effort fly over the bar for the Blues before Chester opened the scoring on 15 minutes. Craig Mahon won a tackle and set Gary Stopforth free and his cross was cut back for Matty Hughes to score via a deflection.

Iwan Murray saw a free kick drift wide as Chester looked to build on their lead. Grant Shenton, who had had little to do in the home goal, had to move smartly to deny ex-Blue Harry White who sent in a dipping shot that was pushed away for a corner.

There were huge appeals for a penalty following a foul on Hughes in the box by Harvey Smith, referee Sam Mulhall waived play-on and the injured Hughes had to be replaced by substitute Deane Smalley.

Mahon saw an effort fly inches over the bar as Chester started the second half on the front foot. Bulls midfielder Mike McGrath was booked for diving in the penalty area and picked up a second yellow card minutes later for a late foul on Mahon to reduce the visitors to ten men.

John Pritchard doubled Chester’s lead on 72 minutes shooting into the far corner following Jon Moran’s pass. The Blues continued to press and sealed victory three minutes from time as Smalley headed home Stopforth’s cross.
