Vital Quotes:

The City gaffa said the following to the official site:

‘Yes, I look forward to every game of football, we have to remind ourselves that it is a game of football, it is not a war’.

‘We want to win the match for the fans and we will give it our best shot, but we have to remember it is a game of football’


‘No, you can’t prepare differently, because if you do then you are not treating the other games equally as valuable and they all are’.

‘We do know the significance of the game, there is a big rivalry between Wrexham and Chester, not many teams in the world have a derby match which is cross border’.


‘We’ll make sure our guys are ready for the challenge the same as Wrexham will’.
