Welling claimed their first win in six games with victory over relegation-threatened Chester despite playing with 10 men for an hour.

Following a good start, Jake Gallagher was sent off for violent conduct.

But after the break the superb Basile Karagiannis put 13th-placed Welling ahead with a drilled left-foot effort.

Ross Lafayette made the game safe late on by converting Josh Wakefield's cross to leave Chester just two points above the relegation places.
