Chester 3-3 Nuneaton Town

Nuneaton Town came from behind three times to claim a point in a six-goal thriller against 10-man Chester.

Following Jason Jarrett's early red card, Chester took the lead through John Rooney's low right-foot shot.

After Louis Moult headed Boro level, Matty Taylor's left-foot shot quickly restored Chester's lead, only for Andy Brown to head a second equaliser.

Ross Killock's right-footed finish put City ahead again, but Brown levelled again just four minutes from time.

Chester had new left-back Ricky Bridge making his debut following his arrival from Evo-Stik Division One South side Newcastle Town.

Jarrett's red card came for violent conduct, for ending up in a fight following a rash, high challenge on Boro midfielder Adam Walker.
