JONATHAN FRANKS can't wait to sample his first cross border derby.

Wrexham entertain arch rivals Chester at The Racecourse on Sunday and attacker Franks, who joined the Reds in February after leaving troubled Hartlepool United, is expecting a special occasion.

"I am looking forward to Sunday's game," said Franks, who made his first start in Wrexham's last match, the 2-2 draw against Aldershot Town nearly a fortnight ago..

"I have heard little bits and bobs and I know it is quite a big rivalry.

"We are expecting a big turnout from the fans, which they always do, and it adds that little bit of spice to the game.

"These are the games you want to be involved in, the big games, and against our local rivals it makes it extra special."

Seventh placed Wrexham are unbeaten in 12 games but nine have ended in draws, with Franks eager to get back to winning ways against the relegation threatened Blues to boost the promotion challenge.

"We need to start turning draws into wins and get some momentum before the end of the season, and see where that takes us," added Franks.

"You have got to aim high for the title until it is not possible but take each game as it comes and hopefully get three points on Sunday.

"Between now and the end of the season we have got to get as many points as we can and hopefully we could finish top, but if it is play-offs we will deal with that and go from there."
