Wrexham boss Dean Keates says that Wrexham must come out on the front foot in the cross-border derby against Chester on Sunday afternoon. 

The reds took all three points in a 0-1 victory at the Deva Stadium earlier this season thanks to Shaun Pearson's header but plenty has changed inbetween the two games. 

Keates said: "The game at Chester was difficult. We had a game plan which worked but it's going to be totally different this weekend.

"We are at home and the onus is on us to go out there and force the game. I don't think Chester will sit back. I'm expecting them to have a right go at it."

Looking to complete the double over the Dragons nearest rivals is motivation enough for the players who Keates say's are fired up for the big match.

"It's a derby match and everyone in the dressing room knows what it means to the town and the Football Club. It's the bragging rights and the lads know what it means.

"They know all about it after the last game and that this game is about Wrexham AFC and three points."
