Chester left it late but Jon Moran's header in added time
rescued a point for the Blues who looked to be heading
for a late defeat at Nethernoor.
Danny Livesey, Matty Waters and John Pritchard all missed
the game through injury and managers Anthony Johnson and
bernard Morley brought in Steve
Howson, Dan Mooney and Moran as replacements against a
Guiseley side managed by ex-Blues boss Marcus Bignot.
Chester started well with Moran shooting over from a Gary
Stopforth cross in the early stages. There was a scare
at the other end as Rowan Liburd found himself free on
the edge of the six yard box but Grant Shenton managed
to save his weak effort.
Mooney forced a save low down by Joe Green as Chester
pushed for the opening goal, Matty Hughes and Anthony
Dudley also forced saves from Green and Dudley saw another
curling effort drift just wide before half-time.
It was the home side that started the second period stronger
with Kayode Odejayi heading a free-kick at Shenton in
the opening stages.
Moran almost opened the scoring on 70 minutes as his header
from a Craig mahon cross flashed just over the bar. Liburd
was again left in space inside the penalty area but wasted
a great opportunity for the hosts heading weakly at Shenton.
Two minutes from time the home side struck as a free kick
from former Blue Andy Halls was headed home at the far
post by Scott Garner.
But Chester weren't finished and as the game entered stoppage
time a long ball into the box was met by Moran who sent
a looping header over Green into the net.
With moments remaining Simon Grand was on hand to clear
off the line from Kaine Felix who had rounded Shenton
to preserve the vital point for the Blues.
