Chester FC 1-1 Bradford Park Avenue - Match Watch

Chester celebrated their impressive record of having scored in 50 successive matches last night by spurning a chance for every goal scored in that period.

Following an early hit from Bradford Park Avenue striker Danny Holland, Chester came to life, but several opportunities went begging for the front two of Nathan Jarman and Marc Williams.
"Ben Mills," said Deva Chat.

Avenue keeper Tim "Easy" Deasy began making saves with such disdain that at one point he even cheekily pointed to the corner he thought Jarman should aim for when through, before producing a scorpion kick to deny Antoni Sarcevic.

BPA defended doggedly, getting bodies in the way to block certain goals.  Striker Williams even helped out at the end, clearing a Jarman strike off the line with such skill that he convinced the referee that he was a defender, and the match official duly gave a corner.

By that point, however, the former Wrexham forward had at least levelled things up for the Blues, getting low to head home from Sean Clancy's corner.

"To be honest, it's a bit like ordering a cone of chips, then waiting two hours before the takeaway finally gives you one chip," mused manager Neil Young.  "Alright, you eat it, but it's nowhere near as much as what you should have had.  And there's not enough surface area to put any vinegar on."

"That last bit might only apply to the chips thing, actually."

The draw sends Chester to the top of the Blue Square Bet North by virtue of the superiority of their goals difference over now-second-placed Brackley Town.

"We could have gone on and got the win, but we're big on the goals difference thing at Chester," nodded skipper George Horan.  "Made for an entertaining last day at Garforth in that first season, like, so we're just looking to recreate that to be honest."

Meanwhile, following an excellent performance by former Desperate Scousewives star Sean Clancy, Neil Young has reportedly spent today trawling through the Geordie Shore boxset in search of the target man he so desperately needs.
