Woking 0-1 Chester

Chester midfielder Jamie Menagh

Jamie Menagh's winner at fellow strugglers Woking moved Chester out of the Conference Premier relegation zone.

The midfielder curled the ball home in off the post after racing on to a John Rooney pass.

Home goalkeeper Mason Springthorpe recovered from an error to deny Jamie Reed and Craig Linfield also went close to doubling the half-time advantage.

Reed had an effort cleared off the line, as Chester held on to earn their first back-to-back wins this season.

It was a third goal in five games for Menagh, who scored twice on his Chester debut at home to Lincoln City just before Christmas.
