WREXHAM midfielder Danny Williams dedicated yesterday's derby-day win against rivals Chester City to the club's supporters and claimed the Dragons should have won more convincingly than the 2-1 scoreline.
"It's a great result for everyone, including the players and the fans, but from a personal point of view the three points is what counts," he said.
"That result takes us up the table and that's what we were looking for."
There was no shortage of incident during the afternoon, which saw City midfielder Ricky Ravenhill sent off for violent conduct in the 25th minute, Wrexham's Steve Evans following in his footsteps 13 minutes from time after collecting a second yellow card and skipper Neil Roberts scoring a penalty.
"It was a good derby to be fair," added Williams. "To be honest I didn't see the first incident outside the penalty area so I couldn't say what happened. I don't know whether their lad kicked Mike (Ingham) in the chest or whatever, but Stevie Evans definitely deserved to go off for shirt-pulling. That's just the way it goes.
"Chester got a lift when he was sent off and it disrupted us a bit because we had to change formation. But we should have killed the game off long before then because we had the chances. In the end, though, the main thing is that we've won 2-1.
Wrexham manager Denis Smith also enjoyed the afternoon, saying: "It was a cracking win and it was a real local derby.
"There was a lot of commitment from both sides, there were a lot of tackles and challenges flying in, but fortunately
in the end we got the better of it and took the result.
"These sort of games are all about winning and I'm delighted with the result. We've gone four games now unbeaten and you can see the commitment in the team. We've had nine Welshmen out there today and they understand what it means to Wrexham fans to win these sort of games.
"We've got eight points now and only conceded two goals.
"I've been fortunate in bringing in a lot of local lads who are totally committed to this football club moving forward, as I am, and hopefully we'll get the rewards from that."
Smith said he had not witness Ravenhill's challenge on keeper Mike Ingham, who had raced to the edge of his area to cut out a through ball.
"I didn't see the incident," added the Racecourse boss.
"I looked over at the linesman to see whether he'd seen our keeper come out of the box, which I thought he had from where I was. Ravenhill must have gone in after that and I've missed it."
And he admitted Wrexham had been forced to hang on following Evans' departure.
"I knew they were going to bring (Drewe) Broughton on and I wanted Steve to mark him, so it couldn't have come at a worse time. It threw us a bit but we put Mike Williams on to give us a bit of height."
Chester defender Paul Linwood, who was on loan at Wrexham last season, claimed City's late fightback deserved at least a point.
"I thought we were unlucky to lose today," he said "When their big lad was sent off it gave us a bit of a lift and we didn't give up at any stage."
