Chester City’s dismall form continued under City manager Mark Wright at the weekend as an own goal from Laurence Wilson helped Chesterfield on their way to a 3-1 victory.

The visitors bagged further goals from substitutes Jamie Winter and Martin Gritton to put the matter beyond the Blues grasp.

Wilson turned in Gregor Robertson’s inswinging corner on the half hour but Chester levelled when Damien Mozika headed home Mark Hughes’s cross.

Winter then came on seven minutes later and made it 2-1 from 25 yards out.

The visitors sealed victory late on, Gritton helping home Lloyd Kerry’s deflected lob from close range.

It was debutant Gritton’s second goal against Chester in three weeks, having also netted the third goal for Macclesfield in a 3-1 win at Moss Rose, prior to his midweek move to Saltergate.
