Welling United 2-1 Chester

Goals in each half from Reece Harris and Ricky Wellard earned Welling victory over Chester FC.

The hosts' Harry Lee had the ball in the net first, but was ruled offside.

Chester came close when Ross Hannah's acrobatic effort hit a post, but it was Welling who led at half-time as Harris dinked coolly over Jon Worsnop.

Wellard poked in Welling's second after Worsnop had denied Xavier Vidal before Hannah's bundled effort gave Chester a late consolation.
