A relieved Chester held off bottom-of-the-table Solihull at the Deva Stadium to register their first win in seven matches. There was little inspiration from two struggling sides in the first half. Lucas Dawson’s effort for the Blues was comfortably fielded by Max O’Leary, and Oladapo Afolayan had a shot blocked out at the other end.There was finally something to cheer after 77 minutes, when substitute Ross Hannah sealed Chester’s victory. Ryan Astles flicked on Lucas Dawson’s corner, and the striker was in the right place to turn in his third goal in four games.
Solihull’s miserable day was confirmed late on when Darren Carter was shown a second yellow card for a late tackle on Dawson.Match report supplied by the Press Association.
