Match ends, York City 1, Chester FC 1.
York City 1-1 Chester
Kane Richards' late strike spoilt the day on York boss Gary Mills' homecoming as he secured a draw for Chester at Bootham Crescent.
Following a slow first half, Chester could have taken the lead when James Alabi forced home goalkeeper Kyle Letheren into a fine save with his feet on 67 minutes.
But, just three minutes later, Matt Fry headed home Danny Galbraith's corner much to the relief of the home crowd.
Alabi was once again foiled by Letheren moments before Richards smacked the woodwork with nine minutes remaining.
But home hearts were broken when the striker made amends by heading in a left-wing cross in the 92nd minute, a goal that condemned York to a 10th game without a win.
Chester's injury-time equaliser stretched their unbeaten National League run to eight matches, but Fry's strike ended their club record league run of seven clean sheets in a row.
It was the first league goal Chester had conceded in over 12 hours of football since Darren Carter's 52nd-minute strike for Forest Green at Bumpers Lane on 3 September.
