Chester 0-2 Woking

Woking beat Chester to climb into third place in the National League table.

Kane Ferdinand's first-half header and Jamie Philpot's tap-in midway through the second half helped Woking return to winning ways after Sunday's draw against Hartlepool.

Marcus Bignot's Chester remain in the bottom four as a result of their third home defeat of the season - and their first loss under the new boss.

Former Southend, Peterborough and Dagenham midfielder Ferdinand headed the visitors in front in the 10th minute from Matt Young's cross.

The goal was Woking's only real chance of note in the first half, Chester's best efforts coming from a Liam Davies break and James Akintunde's subsequent shot, stopped by Woking goalkeeper Nathan Baxter

Philpot scored Woking's second in the 71st minute when he tapped in from a deflection after Andy Halls' backpass made goalkeeper Alex Lynch scramble for the ball.
