CHESTER consolidated their place at the top of the league table with a commanding display.
Antoni Sarcevic broke the deadlock for the Blues in the 36th minute when he rifled an 18 yard shot into the bottom left corner of the net.
Sarcevic celebrated his 11th goal of the season after Dave Hankin had chested a Dominic Collins cross into his path.
Substitute Iain Howard doubled Chester's lead in the 58th minute from close range after an assist by Marc Williams from Matty McGinn's low left wing cross.
And Marc Williams made it 3-0 in the 67th minute with a low shot that found the target off the base of the right post after a fine build up between Nathan Jarman and Dave Hankin.
