Tranmere Rovers 0-0 Chester
Tranmere Rovers extended their unbeaten run to three matches as they were held to a goalless National League local derby draw by Chester.
Connor Jennings had the better of the first-half chances for the home side at Prenton Park.
He attempted to set up team-mate James Norwood after 13 minutes before forcing a good save from visiting goalkeeper Alex Lynch six minutes from the break.
Ollie Norburn also tested Lynch, while Andy Cook headed wide and Lynch then pulled off another fantastic save to deny Dylan Mottley-Henry after 65 minutes.
Substitute Gerry McDonagh had an effort kept out with 20 minutes remaining before Jennings hit the far post, then fired over the crossbar late on.
Chester, who had a 20-minute spell of dominance after the break, remain in the relegation zone, having now won one, lost one and drawn one under new boss Marcus Bignot.
