Southport 0-0 Chester

Southport remain without a home win since mid-October after being held to a goalless draw by Chester as both sides finished with 10 men.

Chester's Kingsley James was sent off in the closing stages after clashing with home substitute Richard Brodie, who was booked before a late caution.

Danny Hattersley's first-half strike for Southport was ruled offside.

Dominic Collins then missed a good opening for the hosts when he headed a late chance over from close range.
