Match ends, Chester FC 1, Boreham Wood 2.
Chester 1-2 Boreham Wood
Boreham Wood secured a comfortable win to hand Chester their fifth defeat in seven games.
Although Nyal Bell struck Chester's first goal in six games late on, Marcus Bignot's men remain in the relegation zone.
After Harry White had an early effort saved for the hosts, the visitors then scored twice in seven first-half minutes.
Shaun Jeffers headed in a 31-minute cross from Bruno Andrade, who turned from provider to scorer when he smashed home the rebound after Kane Smith's effort had been parried by City keeper Alex Lynch.
Half-time substitute Ross Hannah fired a long-range effort wide early in the second half, while Keiran Murtagh and Angelo Balanta had efforts blocked at the other end.
On-loan Gateshead striker Bell came off the bench to convert a Kingsley James cross with 13 minutes left, but his first goal for the club, but it could not prevent the visitors climbing to eighth in the National League table.
