Match ends, Chester FC 4, Welling United 0.
Welling United were relegated to the National League South after a heavy defeat at fellow strugglers Chester.
Home striker John Rooney was denied from the spot by Welling keeper Marek Rodak but soon redeemed himself with a curling shot from 12 yards.
The 25-year-old doubled Chester's lead as he fired in James Alabi's cross before turning provider for Kane Richards to net the third.
Tom Shaw wrapped up the win as Welling managed just one shot on target.
Victory moves Chester five points clear of the National League relegation places with two games to play while Welling slip back into National League South for the first time since the 2012-2013 season.
