Result: Chester 0-0 Southport

Southport stretched their unbeaten league run to eight games with a goalless draw at Chester. 

John Rooney had an early opportunity for the home side, but failed to test Southport goalkeeper Max Crocombe as he hit the side netting.

Luke Foster fired straight at Jon Worsnop for the visitors after Chester failed to clear a corner properly.

The hosts had the best chance of all, but Ross Hannah fired over from six yards after Crocombe fumbled a shot.

Chester, in 17th, are just eight points clear of trouble, having now failed to win in four National Legaue games.

Southport, who are unbeaten in eight league games, are two places, and three points, above them in 15th,
