FRICKLEY Athletic suffered their first league defeat in six games as Evo-Stik League Premier Division leaders Chester prevailed 3-1 at the Tech5 Stadium on Saturday.

The Blues matched their lofty opponents until the 63rd minute when Christian Smith netted but the lead lasted less than 30 seconds and, straight from the restart, Peter Knox rifled in an equaliser.

Chester hit back however and Iain Howard restored Chester’s lead on 71 minutes before victory was sealed eight minutes later with George Horan’s headed third.
