Blues see off the Wombles of Wimbledon

Chester City produced an impressive display to beat AFC Wimbledon 3-1 at the Deva Stadium to record their second successive league win for the first time in over 2 years.

City fielded three strikers to begin with and that gamble paid off with Nick Chadwick getting City off the mark on 10 minutes with a simple finish following good work from fellow striker, Michael Coulson.

Adam Kay then fired a low cross in from the right, which deflected off defender Steven Gregory and into the far corner to double Chester's lead just five minutes later.

City were on fire, and could have had more, but it was Wimbledon who hit back on the stroke of half time with a scrappy goal from John Main, following a twice taken free kick.

Chester fans were expecting the worst at the beginning of the second half, as Wimbledon chased an equalizer, but a mixture of poor finishing, and world class saves from John Danby, as well as a clearance off the line from Neil Ashton ensured City kept their lead intact.

Mark Beesley was then guilty of a terrible miss when substitute Gregg Blundell had gifted him the perfect chance, but Beesley - on loan from Cambridge - shot horribly wide.

Blundell then found himself in exactly the same position as Beesley, but this time made no mistake, and fired the Blues 3-1 ahead.

Wimbledon never gave up though, and continued to press, but City stood firm, and could even have had another one from a Clark Keltie shout which cannoned off the woodwork.

So, three points for the Blues, and Jimmy Harvey's men move to within 7 points of wiping out their 25 point deduction.

Next up for City, three away games, starting off at Grays, the game that should of course have been City's first of the season.

A pleasing day for City fans then, and all Blues fans across the land will be sitting back, enjoying a drink to celebrate the win over the Wombles.
