Chester 1-0 Torquay United

Chester kept a seventh consecutive clean sheet as they beat Torquay United at home.

Ryan Lloyd scored the game's only goal after Elliott Durrell's 26th-minute penalty was saved by Brendan Moore.

Chester have now gone 11 hours without conceding to lift them to within sight of the play-off positions.

Lloyd came close to a second just before half-time when he nicked the ball off Moore, who had been attempting to usher it out, but he sent his chip wide.
