Chandler's goal was his third of the season for Gateshead

Midfielder Jamie Chandler's late goal saw Gateshead come from behind to beat Chester in the Conference.

Craig Hobson put the visitors ahead when he reacted quickest to a mix-up in the Tynesiders' defence.

The post denied Hobson a second before Jon Shaw converted a second-half penalty to level after being fouled at a corner by Danny Harrison.

Chandler blasted home the winner from close range to give Gateshead a second home win of the season.
