Ticket sales update
Chester FC's box office for cross-border derby tickets closes at 4.30pm today (Thursday, September 22).
The club confirmed this morning that, so far, about 600 fans have bought tickets to travel to the Racecourse Ground on Saturday.
The Blues face Wrexham in a 12.15pm kick off.
Bubble match restrictions and BT Sport showing the match live on TV are expected to be factors in a reduced attendance.
A contingent of 930 Blues fans made the trip across the border for the last meeting between the two sides in March.
The latest Wrexham team news
Wrexham boss Gary Mills has revealed he is hopeful of bringing bodies back into his squad but is prepared to wait until the 11th hour before naming his team to face Chester in this weekend's cross-border derby.
Jim McCarthy and his side are expected to face a much-changed Dragons XI this weekend following their disappointing defeat to Woking last weekend and, ahead of Saturday's televised clash, he opened up on whether midfielder Robbie Evans will be fit for selection.
Mills also discussed the prospect of Callum Powell and Michael Bakare featuring this weekend, but will assess how each player reacts to the next two days of training before making a definite decision on players suffering from knee and hamstring injuries respectively.
What's McCarthy had to say?
Manager Jon McCarthy has been speaking to the media before the derby clash with Wrexham.
The Blues take on the Dragons at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday, with the action kicking off at 12.15pm.

It's Ben Heneghan day, Chester fans!
Two years ago to this very day, Heneghan scored a stoppage-time winner to secure a 2-1 win for Chester at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium.
The victory will live long in the memory of Chester supporters, who showed their appreciation to the 23-year-old, who is now with Motherwell after leaving the Blues in the summer, on Twitter with some brilliant reaction and memories.
