Spennymoor make their first trip to Chester in 801 days on Tuesday evening aiming to seal a place in the next round of the Emirates FA Cup.
Moors’ only previous visit to the home of the Blues ended in a goalless draw on the opening day of the 2018/19 season, with the same fixture scheduled for April postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The cup fixture marks the first of a double header against Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley’s side, with Moors playing hosts at The Brewery Field on Saturday afternoon in the National League North.
Both sides have began the fledging campaign unbeaten, but Chester can boast a 100% winning start following a 3-2 win over Leamington at the weekend, while Moors had to settle for a 1-1 draw at Alfreton Town.
Manager Jason Ainsley looked ahead to the tie following the match at The Impact Arena.
He said: “We will go there full of confidence after the unbeaten start to the season. We know what the managers are like and they organise their sides very well.
“We know they have lads in their squad who can do damage, but we need to go their with the mindset that we have players who can hurt them.”
