Aldershot Town 1-2 Chester

Kingsley James earned Chester their first victory of the National League season by grabbing a late winner at high-flying Aldershot.

Matt McClure looked like scoring for the Shots on numerous occasions before his opener in the 34th minute when Shaun Okojie's deft touch found him for a slotted finish.

Chester, who arrived in Hampshire with three points from four games, levelled shortly after the break when Lucas Dawson blasted a penalty beyond Jake Cole after Craig Mahon was fouled by Okojie.

The visitors then won it on 82 minutes when Jordan Chappell hit the Aldershot crossbar, allowing fellow Sheffield United academy product James to sneak in and score.

Chester's victory was their first since 1 April, ending a run of 10 league matches without a win.

It also ended a run of 14 successive regular-season home games without defeat for Aldershot.
