Chester 1-1 Cheltenham Town

Kyle Storer's strike gave Cheltenham a share of the points at Chester as both sides maintained their unbeaten starts to their National League campaigns.

The hosts took the lead at the Deva Stadium after eight minutes as Ross Hannah drilled Luke George's pinpoint pass into the back of the net.

After the break, when goalkeeper Jon Worsnop failed to claim a long ball, Storer struck to level for the Robins.

Jack Barthram and Storer missed late chances to give Cheltenham victory.
