Dover Athletic 0-0 Chester

Chester dropped their first points of the season after they were held to a goalless draw at Dover.

Ricky Miller was a constant threat for the hosts but he was unable to beat Jon Worsnop in the Chester goal, while Stefan Payne and Duane Ofori-Acheampong also went close for Dover.

Ross Hannah and Craig Hobson came closest for the visitors but both saw their efforts hit the bar.

The stalemate means Chester drop to fifth, while Dover slip to 13th.
