The Cestrians produced a good display in this crucial game with a 4-0 away win at Esh Winning and move them up to 12th in the league . Manager Steve Bowey made several changes to the team that lost at home to Boro Rangers and included new signing defender Lewis Bateman
Honours were even in the first half with Esh pushing to force a lead but keeper Hunter in the Chester le Street goal was rarely troubled with any shots going wide of the goal.
Chester le Street upped their game in the second half with Josh Akal slotting home on 50 mins only to find that the Referee ruled it out for offside. They did take the lead shortly after with Lewis Charlton firing home wide of keeper Jack Wells into the corner of the net and 2 mins later a cross from Tom Scouthern was completely misjudged by the keeper as it sailed over his out stretched arms over his head and into the net. The Cestrians were back again on 70 mins to claim a 3rd goal when Josh Akal broke on the right and crossed towards Michael Gray in the Centre only for an Esh Defender to turn into his own net
Two minutes from the end Sam Porthouse got to a long ball as keeper Wells raced out and he lobbed over him from 30 yards to complete a well deserved win
