Altrincham 1 Chester City 1

The Blues managed to net their second point of the season so far, as they came from behind to draw 1-1 at Altrincham.

It was Altrincham that started the ball rolling after 22 minutes when Colin Little headed home from ex Chester defender Matt Doughty's cross.

Ben Wikinson grabbed his second goal of the season when he was picked out by Kevin Roberts, to level the game up.

Tim Ryan & Ben Wilkinson were booked for City.

Chester really should have taken the initiative at this point and secured all 3 points, but failed to do so, and as such have only moved to -23 points in the League table.

City remain 28 points from safety, and next up are two home games, Histon on Saturday, followed by Tamworth a week tonight.

Chester's season really started in earnest yesterday following those nightmare opening 4 games, where we had to face 4 teams in the top 8, including the three favourites to go up this season.

Now the battle starts, with winnable games (on paper at least) heading up to the first Wrexham derby match in non league football takes place.
