Wrexham vs Chester FC: Hughes or Hudson? Roberts or Worsnop? Pick YOUR Blues starting XI

Choose your Chester FC starting XI to face Wrexham in the cross-border derby this weekend with our team selector

Chester FC travel to Wrexham this weekend in the latest cross-border derby, with Jon McCarthy mulling over whether or not to make changes to his starting XI.

Wrexham themselves are expected to make alterations to theirs having slumped to a 2-0 defeat to Woking last weekend, with manager Gary Mills hinting that he may also be able to welcome back the likes of Robbie Evans, Callum Powell and Michael Bakare.

McCarthy was once more keen to keep his cards close to his chest when discussing his team selection before Saturday's game, but did suggest Luke George and Ross Killock will take a full part in training ahead of the trip to the Racecourse.

So, will you decide to stick with the XI which saw off Braintree Town last weekend or does McCarthy need to introduce some more experience to his side for such a big game?

Youngsters Liam Roberts and Sam Hughes have both been excellent in deputising for Jon Worsnop, who has suffered with illness, and former Wrexham central defender Blaine Hudson.

Here's the line-up our man Mike Fuller is hoping to see this weekend:

Mike Fuller's Chester XI to face Wrexham

"It might be dull, but Chester should stick with the team which has gone them six points from six," said Mike.

"That includes going with Liam Roberts between the sticks, despite Jon Worsnop being a little unlucky to lose his place through illness.

"I could maybe make a case for bringing back James Alabi up front because of his height and power away from home.

"Kane Richards and Oluwaseun Akintunde have shown bright flashes and just need to find that finishing touch a little more often.

"If it's consistency Jon McCarthy is after he should reward those who are giving it to him."
