Chester 1-1 Welling United

Tyrone Marsh's stoppage-time equaliser earned a draw for Welling at Chester.

The hosts broke the deadlock in the 10th minute when Craig Mahon's shot from the edge of the box found its way past Wings goalkeeper Jonathan Henly.

Welling started the second half brightly but they could not find a way past Chester's resolute defence until the dying moments of the match.

Marsh got on the end of substitute Malachi Hudson's pass to nod the ball past Chester goalkeeper Jon Worsnop.

On-loan Chester midfielder Jadan Hall has returned to parent club Burnley for treatment after picking up an injury in training on Thursday which could keep him for at least a fortnight.

Chester manager Steve Burr told BBC Radio Merseyside:

Burr frustrated by late equaliser

"It was a scrappy game in which both sides cancelled each other out, But it was two points dropped. When it's scrappy like that, it would have been a great result for us had we taken all three points."

"To concede a goal right at the end was hard to take, But we did it to Wrexham a couple of weeks ago, so we know what it's like.

"I was having a bit of a dig at Craig Mahon saying he hadn't scored yet. But he's been struggling with a bit of a niggle and he played well., him and Kingsley James, who was immense for us."
