Chester 3-2 Hyde

Chester battled to victory over already-relegated Hyde to boost their own Conference Premier survival bid.

Gareth Seddon bagged the opener for the Blues with a sweet half-volley, and the lead was doubled when Josh Brizell headed into his own net.

Craig Hobson nodded in John Rooney's corner to make it 3-0.

Adam Blakeman converted two free-kicks for the visitors as Chester's Matt Brown received a straight red card for violent conduct, but the hosts held on.
