Wrexham and Chester fought out a goalless draw in a scrappy derby at the Racecourse Ground on Sunday.
The point was enough for Wrexham to climb out of the League Two relegation places on goal difference from Boston.
The Dragons just shaded the first half, with Chris Llewellyn shooting just over and then heading against the bar.
Both sides showed the required passion in the second period and Chester nearly won it from a 71st-minute Paul Linwood free-kick that John Ruddy saved well.
