CHESTER FC has launched an investigation into "offensive and unacceptable comments" allegedly made during Saturday's home victory over Boston United.

The Standard understands that the incident relates to alleged comments made from someone in the main stand towards Blues co-manager Anthony Johnson.

It occurred around the time Chester striker Darren Stephenson scored in the 86th minute to seal a 4-0 win.

As part of the investigation, the club is encouraging supporters who witnessed the incident to contact the club in confidence.
