North Ferriby United 0-1 Chester

Chester recorded a sixth straight clean sheet to earn a third win in five games by beating 10-man North Ferriby at Grange Lane.

With little to separate the sides at half-time and the score goalless, things took a turn for the worse for the hosts after 66 minutes, when midfielder Ben Middleton was sent off for a second yellow card.

Chester made their man advantage count with 15 minutes remaining through James Akintunde, who finished calmly into the bottom corner when one-on-one with Rory Watson.

Further opportunities fell to James Alabi and Theo Vassell but - despite their failure to convert - the Blues held on for victory.
