Barnet 3-0 Chester

Curtis Weston
Weston scored Barnet's third goal

Barnet preserved their seven-point lead at the top as they comfortably beat 10-man Chester.

Goals from John Akinde, Charlie MacDonald and Curtis Weston gave Martin Allen's side a third straight victory.

Akinde pounced on poor defending to give his side the lead before the break before Gareth Roberts was dismissed for a wild challenge on Luisma Villa.

Barnet took advantage with MacDonald finishing well before Weston converted David Stephens' pass.
