Chester boosted their survival hopes with a hard-fought point in the Anglo-Welsh derby against Wrexham.

The Dragons' Joe Anyinsah was lucky not to be sent off early on, receiving a yellow card for a late, high challenge on Chester's Kevin McIntyre.

Wrexham's Dean Keates and Neil Ashton had efforts saved in a scrappy encounter short of goalmouth action.

Chester are two points clear of the relegation zone with two matches left, while Wrexham are 15th.

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told BBC Radio Wales:

" It was never a sending off. Yeah maybe his [Anyinsah] foot's high and I think the boy's kicked the bottom of his foot, but if you're getting sent off for things like that then I think you're in trouble.

"It was a fantastic atmosphere. Clearly we'd have liked to have won it but I felt we stayed disciplined and organised.

"It was a scrappy affair and probably overall a draw was a fair result."
