Chester 0-2 Altrincham

Altrincham recorded their first Conference victory in four matches with a well-deserved win over Chester.

The home side came close to opening the scoring but John Rooney's free-kick was spectacularly saved by Altrincham goalkeeper Stuart Coburn.

Tom Marshall put the visitors in front, heading in Shaun Densmore's free-kick midway through the first half.

Altrincham secured victory in the second half through Gianluca Havern's header from James Lawrie's corner.
