Chester 3-0 Dagenham & Redbridge

Chester stunned Dagenham & Redbridge with a comprehensive 3-0 win home win the National League.

The unfancied Blues were galvanised from the outset, and took the lead after 12 minutes when Elliott Durrell netted with a stunning volley from 25 yards.

John Still's men were still reeling when Theo Vassell slid a superb ball through to Tom Shaw, and the midfielder bided his time before smashing past Elliot Justham.

Liam Roberts did his bit in the Chester goal, parrying a firm Oli Hawkins header.

After the break, an inspired Chester pushed on and Johnny Hunt whipped in a cross for James Alabi to head in and crown a fine night.
