Boreham Wood boss Luke Garrard is expecting Chester to try and 'right some wrongs' when the two sides clash on Saturday (3pm).
The Blues travel to Meadow Park this weekend for an encounter with a Wood side who have impressed in the opening four games, sitting in fifth place on seven points.
The Hertfordshire side were beaten at home by league leaders Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday night while the Blues, who have lost three of their opening four games, were on the wrong end of a 3-2 decision at Barrow.
“Chester haven't had the start they wanted but they will get another opportunity against us on Saturday and look to right some wrongs,” Garrard told the Borehamwood Times.
“That's what I've asked the players to do too. We don't want doom and gloom. We've lost a game against a Tranmere side that are the best side we've played. You will have to go a long way to beat them to the title.
“You have to put it all in perspective. We have taken seven points from 12 and if we can get a positive result on Saturday that's 10 from 15 – I'd have been over the moon with that at the start of the season.”
Had the Wood beaten Tranmere they would have gone to the summit of the National League.
They were dealt a blow late on against Gary Brabin's Rovers when midfielder Conor Clifford was shown a red card following a second yellow. The former Chelsea youngster will miss the visit of the Blues on Saturday as he serves a one-match ban.
