Jamie Reed has tasted FA Trophy success before and would relish the chance to do it again with his home town club.
Reed, 26, was part of the York City side who triumphed 2-0 over Newport County in 2012, coming on as a late substitute.
Chester-born Reed hopes to feature against AFC Barrow in the first round tomorrow and believes the Blues can go all the way to the Wembley final.
“Chester is my home town and it would be brilliant to get there,” he said.
“Until you get to Wembley, you don’t quite realise how big it is and it takes your breath away.
“It was an unbelievable experience and the whole town was buzzing for weeks after we won there.”
Reed believes the fact the Blues have performed well against the top three sides in the league shows they have the ability to put together a good run.
He said: “We’ve proven throughout the season that we can do it. Win a few games and you are in the semi-finals so there is no reason why we can’t get to Wembley.”
Reed has scored once in 12 league games so far, although seven of his appearances have been off the bench.
“It has been a stuttering start for me and the team,” he said.
“We have been changing formations and players but that’s what you do when you aren’t getting results.”
Manager Neil Young now appears settled on playing one up-front and Reed, who was a prolific goalscorer in the Welsh Premier, wants to stake a claim for the starting spot.
He said: “I was very raw when I went to York but I think I improved and matured as a player there.
“When you play up front on your own it’s hard and you need chances to be created for you. Every now and then things fall for you but that’s rare.
“I think I have done well in every game except one and my hold-up play has probably been the most impressive thing about my game.”
With Gareth Seddon struggling for fitness, Reed could find himself leading the line against Barrow.
He believes a win would provide the whole club with a boost ahead of a crucial run of games in the league.
“There are no easy games but it’s an opportunity for us to put a stamp on the game and get some confidence,” he said.
“We can put a marker down, as a team and individually. We have been inconsistent this season but hopefully a win on Saturday could be a real catalyst for us.
“Winning the FA Trophy with York was pretty special. It gave us a lift to go and push for promotion and that’s what we did.
“It was a great experience and it helped the whole club.”
