Chester 1-1 Dover Athletic

Ricky Miller scored a goal of the season contender as Dover moved up to third in the National League table.

The ball did not touch the ground as Stefan Payne kicked it over his head, Ricky Modeste flicked it back and Miller brilliantly volleyed the ball into the net with his left foot.

Chester equalised in first-half injury-time when Ross Hannah turned in John Rooney's cross.

Dover later had a Jamie Grimes header ruled out before Miller headed wide.
