The Cestrian’s gained their first point of the season from a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Tow Law. Chester came close to taking the lead inside the first minute when a high ball was played into the area and keeper, Lewis Graham only punched clear to Luke Collins who hit it back first time but a defender got back to clear the ball. Tow Law created an opportunity after 3 minutes when a low cross was made from the right across the face of the goal but Michael Brown just failed to make contact at the far post. After 9 minutes some good play saw Liam Dixon play the ball left for Collins to fire in a good shot which brought a good save from Graham. After 11 minutes a through ball sent Brown racing clear, although he did look to be well off-side, but Christopher Rookes made a good block. Chester took the lead after 13 minutes when a ball in from the right found Michael Hepplewhite and he found the net. After 31 minutes, Liam Dixon got the ball on the left and cut in to hit a good strike which
brought another good save from Graham. After 35 minutes, a corner from the right was only cleared to Craig Marron on the edge of the area. He fired in a good shot but it was deflected off a defender for another corner. As the second half started there was a torrential downpour and at one time it looked doubtful that the match could continue. It made playing conditions difficult. Tow Law equalised after 57 minutes when the ball was played into the area for Michael Brown to make a good turn and fire a great shot into the corner of the net. Chester came close to regaining the lead after 63 minutes when a ball into the area found Michael Hepplewhite and as Graham rushed out, he slipped the ball past the keeper but it drifted just past the far post. Tow Law came close after 77 minutes when a shot from the edge of the area was blocked and Keigan Turns completed the clearance. Tow Law pressed hard looking for a winner but the Chester defence held firm. Tow Law came close to finding a
winner in the 89th minute when a good low shot from Lewis Bateman brought a great save from Rookes. Considering the conditions it was a good game with neither side deserving to lose.
