The Chester FC board of directors have thanked supporters for behaving in an 'exemplary' manner during the derby at Wrexham at Saturday.
More than 900 Blues fans attended the game at the Glyndŵr University Racecourse Stadium, which ended in a 3-0 defeat for Steve Burr's team.
Due to the controversial bubble match arrangements that were in force, Chester supporters had to travel to and from the ground on official coaches with a police escort.
North Wales Police have confirmed no arrests made and said the derby had passed without incident, however it was later revealed 40 seats in the home stand had been broken and Wrexham have launched an investigation into the damage.
The board of supporters group City Fans United (CFU), which owns the Blues, released a statement on Tuesday thanking Chester fans for their behaviour and expressing their hope that the absence of trouble could lead to the bubble match restrictions being lifted.
The board have also addressed concerns from a section of supporters over no alcohol being on sale to visiting fans at the game, explaining it was a consequence of the damage a minority of Chester fans caused to seats at last season's derby.
"The CFU board would like to take the opportunity to thank fans for their exemplary behaviour at the cross-border derby game on Saturday against Wrexham," reads the statement.
"We hope it is another step towards the removal of the bubble restrictions we currently have.
Should the bubble match restrictions be in place for next season?

"The board have also been made aware of some concerns among supporters who attended the Wrexham game with regards to the ban on the sale of alcohol.
"At last year’s fixture there was damage caused to Wrexham’s stadium by some Chester fans which cost our club a significant amount of money. At a subsequent CFU meeting members felt that the sale of alcohol at the ground was a contributory factor.
"This was discussed and agreed with Safety Advisory Group as it was felt that the non-sale of alcohol would represent a reciprocal arrangement between the clubs.
"Once again, we would like to thank supporters for their terrific following and behaviour at the weekend."
