Chester 1-0 Eastleigh

Ben Heneghan scored the only goal of the game as Chester beat Eastleigh to ended a four-game winless run.

John Rooney tested Eastleigh goalkeeper Lewis Noice before floating a free-kick into the box for Heneghan to powerfully head home.

In response Jamie Turley dragged a good chance wide, while James Constable also headed off target for the visitors.

Noice did well to deny George Thomson, before Ross Lafayette was kept out by Jon Worsnop at the other end.
