Alfreton Town 1-1 Chester

Ben Heneghan's late header gave Chester a draw at relegation-threatened Alfreton.

The home side took the lead midway through the first-half through Tom Shaw who rifled home from 35 yards into the top left-hand corner.

Alfreton debutant Jake Speight nearly doubled the lead after half-time but his shot was well saved by Jon Worsnop.

Heneghan headed home substitute Sean McConville's excellent cross in the 88th minute.
