Nuneaton Town 1-0 Chester

A late Louis Moult goal earned Nuneaton victory over Conference Premier strugglers Chester.

The hosts created the better chances as Adam Walker and James Armson saw shots from the edge of the box go wide.

Paul Linwood fired over the bar for the visitors before Emmitt Delfouneso's 18 yard strike hit the bar for Nuneaton.

Moult grabbed the three points late on as he netted from close range moments before Jason Jarrett was denied an equaliser by a fine Kelle Roos save.
