City draw in latest Derby Encounter - Wrexham 2 Chester City 2

Chester City travelled to Wrexham's Racecourse ground earlier today to resume on of the world's few international derbies.

This was the 73rd occasion the two sides have clashed in the league, Wrexham edging the head-
to head with 29 victories against Chester's 26. Today's game ended in a 2-2 draw to notch up the 18th league draw between the sides.

On the field it was basement club Wrexham who fought back with a brace from Michael Proctor to rescue a point for the Red Dragons.

Wrexham still remain rooted to the bottom of League Two though. Chester took a 26th minute lead through Kevin Roberts after he volleyed past Wrexham 'keeper Anthony Williams.

But Proctor equalised 10 minutes later much to the delight of new manager Brian Little.

On the stroke of half-time Chester got their noses back in front through Paul Linwood, but Proctor volleyed home with 15 minutes remaining to make the scores 2-2.
