Wrexham vs Chester Betting Preview



There is plenty of stake here in the massive local derby for both sides and the teams will be determined to put on a show. Wrexham boss Gary Mills has urged his side to prioritise three points in this one.

They are unbeaten here at the Racecourse Ground and will be looking to preserve that record in the cross-border derby. They’ve also been defensively brilliant here in front of their own fans, conceding just a single goal in 5 home matches.

Their away form is an issue and is forcing them back into midtable, but here, they are a tough nut to crack. They’ve won their last two games, scoring 3 goals and conceding just 1.

Despite this good form, some of the fans booed Wrexham off after the final whistle in the 1-0 win against Sutton. They felt as though the players were below par, despite picking up a vital three points.

They’ll be hoping for a better intensity and greater effort In a game that means a lot to both sets of fans. They can boast the bragging rights from the last couple of encounters with 1-0 and 3-0 wins here.

They come into this match off the back of an away defeat to Woking, but Mills is putting that behind him and insisting his side will be up for this one.

He suggested his players won’t have any problem being fired up for this one and is looking for a performance to remember from his squad.

It’s a busy week for the Welsh side as they face a re-arranged game against Macclesfield on Tuesday night. The original game was called off a couple of weeks ago following a series of storms results in downpours around Manchester and Cheshire.



Coming into this derby, Chester have hit form at just the right time. It’s now three consecutive clean sheets for the club and 7 points collected from a possible nine.

They will head into the derby with plenty of confidence and will be looking to add to the recent frustrations shown by the Wrexham fans.

They will also be looking to exact revenge for last season’s defeat at the Racecourse. They lost 3-0 in March and centre-back Ryan Astles was dismissed. The defender will feature again here and is determined to put things right this time around.

He’s been part of the defence that has shown significant improvement recently.

Astles admitted that the derby ‘isn’t like any other match I’ve ever played in’ and is looking forward to pitting his wits against Wrexham once again.

He also urged caution to those looking at recent form suggesting that the formbook goes out the window in these matches.

Further incentive for the away side is that they can move above their opponents if they can travel back across the border with all three points.

Manager Jon McCarthy has been impressed with his side’s recent form and hopes it can continue. He insists he already knows the team he’ll select and needs plenty of characters to stand up and be counted.

Striker Kane Richards is just a booking away from suspension and McCarthy has spoken to the hitman about maintaining his composure in this hotly contested match. Luke George and Ross Killock are back in full training but this match may come too soon.
