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 Dragons came out on top 3-0 in front of a crowd of 6,459, here's hoping for a better result this time round.

We have asked Wrexham for a figure on how many home tickets have been sold and are waiting to hear back.

Safe transport fixture

The clash will be under 'bubble match' restrictions for the fourth season running.

Chester fans are required to meet at the Vauxhall Lookers Stadium before travelling to Wrexham by coach.

Fans will be issued with a ticket for coach travel only and will receive their match tickets on the bus to the game.

This approach has been enforced for recent derbies at both grounds in an effort to stamp out crowd trouble.

If you want some extra atmosphere the club are inviting fans down to the Blues bar at Vauxhall Lookers Stadium to enjoy the game.
