MATT Farr insists Chester have no-one to fear despite their poor form in North One so far this season.
Second-placed Beverley travel to Hare Lane tomorrow to take on second-from-bottom Chester but coach Farr believes his side are now in a position to get results.
'We have a lot of new additions to the team,' he said. 'It is possible that some of them mentally were in awe of some sides we faced in the first half of the season.
'But we have seen what everyone has to offer now and in some cases that is not much.
'I think Chester can cope with any team in North One now and crucially I think they now know they can.'
Director of rugby Steve Donovan has said that the aim this season is survival and Farr agrees.
'That is the ultimate aim,' he said. 'We are not going to win the league or get promoted, which is disappointing, but we are capable of surviving and next season we can push on and aim for a top half finish.
'Perhaps after that we would have a real-istic prospect of promotion but right now we have to win games and survive.'
Last time Chester and Beverley met, Chester were narrowly beaten 15-9.
The Hare Lane men were without a fixture last week so the squad is fresh, although the Donovan brothers are missing as is Jim Lyall.
'Liam Lawton and Simon Love are back in the side,' added Farr. 'We have a good squad which allows us to make changes like this without weakening the team.'
