For the third home game in a row, Chester had to settle for a 1-1 draw. Chester took an early lead in the 2nd minute when the ball was played into Liam Dixon and when he moved into the box he was challenged but the ball broke to Matthew Ward who fired into the net. After 24 minutes Chester made a good move forwards and the ball was played to Luke Collins who fired in a good low shot but it went just wide of the post. Boldon drew level after 26 minutes when Joseph Howey played a weak back pass which was intercepted by Oscar Taylor and he went around Chris Rookes to fire into the empty net.
Boldon should have taken the lead after 54 minutes when a through ball sent Taylor racing to the by-line. He crossed to the unmarked Jamie Whitehead on the far side but he fired wide of the target. After 60 minutes Boldon moved down the right and the ball was fired across the area but Levi Collins failed to make a good contact and the ball went behind for goal kick. Three minutes later, Chester launched a move down the right and the ball was played across the goal but neither Josh
Akal nor Matthew Ward were able to make contact to turn the ball into the net. After 72 minutes, Jack Dykes played the ball into the area to Steven Graham who made a good shot on the turn but it drifted just wide of the target. Boldon nearly snatched victory in the last minute when Collins received the ball inside the area. He turned well to fire in a good shot but Rookes made a good block to turn the
ball to safety. All in all it was a fair result and I think both side would be happy with a point but both would probably look back at the chances which could have won the game.
