Chester 0-0 Stockport

Chester picked up the point they needed to secure their Football League status, relegating Mansfield in the process.

Goalkeeper John Danby was Chester's hero with a string of superb stops to deny Stockport, who were already sure of a place in the League Two play-offs.

He blocked shots from Adam Proudlock either side of half-time before Gareth Owen and Gary Dicker went close.

Danby saved his best for last, keeping out Anthony Pilkington's header from point-blank range as Chester held on.
