The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Wrexham AFC. 

The focus of this week's 'What The Media Say' is Wrexham 0-1 win over local rivals Chester in the cross-border derby.

BBC Wales Sport covered the match and spoke to manager Dean Keates who said: "The table is tight... but we are competing and that is where we need to be" following the big win that puts Wrexham joint top of the Vanarama National League.

Locally, the Leader tweeted: "It's Wrexham fans heading to work with the bragging rights this morning." Reporter Richard Williams acknowledges Chester's second half fight back but said: "the meanest defence in the division produced a fantastic second-half rear-guard". 

The Daily Post reporter Rob Griffiths also tips his hat to the hosts second-half barrage saying it was "backs to the walls at times" but says the Reds "will care little as Wrexham claimed the local bragging rights". 

Wrexham.com went down another route running the headline "Wrexham hammer Chester in derby match". They also note that both sets of supporters "impeccably observed" the pre-match minutes silence for fallen war heroes. 

The Wrexham AFC Media Team's Mark Griffiths and James Harrison analysed the cross-border derby game on the final whistle podcast.
