Midfielder Jamie Chandler's late goal saw Gateshead come from behind to beat Chester in the Conference.

Craig Hobson put the visitors ahead when he reacted quickest to a mix-up in the Tynesiders' defence.

The post denied Hobson a second before Jon Shaw converted a second-half penalty to level after being fouled at a corner by Danny Harrison.

Chandler blasted home the winner from close range to give Gateshead a second home win of the season.
