Craig Mahon reckons the Blues can build momentum on the back of the weekend's FA Cup win but has stressed the need to adopt the right attitude against Macclesfield Town tonight (7.45pm).
Mahon's goal sealed a 2-1 win over Football League side Southend United on Saturday but the focus now switches back to the Vanarama Conference.
Chester are four places below the Silkmen in the table and will be facing a team unbeaten in five games and still to lose on home soil this season.
Macc boss John Askey will want to turn the tables on his former team-mate Steve Burr after a 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture in September.
John Rooney got the only goal of the game against his former club, whipping a free kick around the wall and into the net on 14 minutes.
Macc put them under pressure late on but Jon Worsnop kept them out with some smart saves and the Blues deserved the win on balance.
Chester were excellent at Roots Hall and the cup run has given the club a huge lift but league form has been mixed and Mahon knows the squad cannot afford to get ahead of themselves.
Mahon said: "It's up to us and the gaffer now to get our head back into it because we've got Macclesfield on Tuesday and we've got to put the same effort in there.
"Games like the Southend one are always hard to come down from but that's where our attitude has to come into it and we've got to show that we can keep that performance going through every match all season and that's what we can do."
Chester have taken 10 points from the last 18 available, one better than Macc but the Silkmen have a fine record at the Moss Rose with five wins and four draws from nine games.
Burr will again be without the suspended Matty Hughes and Michael Kay, and Peter Winn is unlikely to feature after being carried off at the weekend, although his condition is not as bad as first feared.
Ibou Touray would be the most obvious replacement for the unfortunate Winn although Jamie Menagh is another option.
Macc are expected to hand a debut to Liam Hogan, who has signed on loan from Fleetwood Town, but will be missing talented midfielder Paul Lewis.
Askey's side have lost only three times and the manager is confident of securing an eighth win of the season.
He said: "You’ve got to be confident. We haven’t lost all season at home so confidence should be high but we can’t afford to take things for granted.
"All games are tough. It doesn’t matter who we play, whether they’re top of the league or at the bottom. If we don’t perform then we’re in trouble but if we do perform there’s no-one we can’t beat."
