Another Daniel Udoh double strike gave Gavin Cowan’s Bucks their fourth win in six games and propelled them to second in the table.

The visitors came into the game off a two-week lay-off, and they looked ring-rusty as the Bucks took a two-goal lead into the half-time interval. Home forwards Udoh and Amari Morgan-Smith had the Chester defence at sixes and sevens, although it was midfielder James McQuilkin who out the Bucks ahead on 14 minutes. He turned the ball home after keeper Grant Shenton gave the ball away, saved well from Udoh but then was helpless as the ball was played across the six-yard box.

On 19 minutes it was 2-0, Udoh given space around the penalty area to bury a low shot past Shenton’s left hand. Anthony Dudley headed tamely wide for the visitors, and Alan Mahon snatched at a rare chance, shooting wide. The Bucks could have extended their lead, Udoh, Morgan-Smith and Darryl Knights all going close.

Chester responded after the break, forcing a series of corners but not taking advantage. However, any chance of a comeback died on 76 minutes when, from a quickly-cleared corner, Udoh was sent clear beat Shenton again.

Former Buck Simon Grand headed a late consolation, but this was to be a day when the Bucks and their fans raised the roof.
