Wrexham’s James Jennings’ cross-border victory over arch rivals Chester was soured by an injury.

Jennings was doubtful for the Deva Stadium encounter last Wednesday because of a thigh problem and the left-back was forced off early in the second half after suffering a recurrence of the injury.

It was the second game in a row that injury cut short Jennings’ involvement.

“I over-stretched my thigh,” said Jennings. “It was always going to be touch and go for the Chester game.

“I wasn’t 100 per cent, I was probably about 75-80 per cent but a big game like that, I didn’t want to miss out on it.

“I didn’t think it was going to hinder the lads otherwise I wouldn’t have played.

“It was just a case of trying to get through it. First half I felt great, no problem at all. Adrenalin and the fans were behind us but it stiffened up at half-time.

“Unfortunately I over stretched and had a recurrence of it. If that didn’t happen I am pretty sure I would have got through the game.

“I wanted to play in the game, the gaffer wanted me to play in it but the most important thing is we got the three points.”
