We can dream, can't we?
Chester FC are up to seventh in the National League, just six points off the play-off places, after a deserved 2-0 success over Aldershot Town at the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium.
Goals from Jordan Chapell and James Alabi either side of the break ensured the points and made for a very welcome early Christmas present for Blues fans.
Jon McCarthy made a number of changes from the side that just squeaked into round two of the FA Trophy on Tuesday night with a 2-1 win over Witton Albion.
Tom Shaw and Ryan Lloyd were both recalled while Luke George came in at right back for the suspended Blaine Hudson while Evan Horwood kept his place at left back with Johnny Hunt operating on the left of midfield.
There were plenty of Premier League scouts in attendance, too, but it wasn't Chester teenager Sam Hughes that they were here to see.
Seventeen-year-old Idris Kanu has been courted by a number of big clubs and teams such as Manchester City were represented as they cast their eye over the teen sensation.
Chester were quick out of the traps with a high tempo and were awarded a penalty after seven minutes when James Alabi was scythed down by Will Evans after the Blues striker had latched on to a superb through ball from Tom Shaw.
But Alabi, who netted a late penalty against Witton on Tuesday, saw his sidefooted spot kick come back off the inside of the post and rebound across goal, with the Shots breathing a huge sigh of relief.
The Blues were full of commitment in the opening 45 minutes with George, Shaw and Alabi all impressing as they made life difficult for the Shots.
Chapell went close with an 18-yard effort before Lloyd saw a goalbound shot blocked after Horwood had teed him up after great work on the right from Alabi to whip in a cross.
Aldershot rarely threatened in the first half but Kanu, a largely peripheral figure for the first 35 minutes, showed glimpses of his quality when he curled an effort just wide from 20 yards while he had a penalty shout waved away after taking a tumble under a challenge from George.
But Chester hit the front a minute before the break when Alabi did well to flick on a long ball, hitting the deck in pain after what looked like a free-kick.
But referee Scott Oldham waved play on and Chapell was alive to the situation, using his electric pace to stop the ball going out, cutting back inside before firing low through the legs of Mark Smith to hand the Blues the lead.
The Blues doubled their advantage nine minutes after the break, and it was Alabi who started and finished it.
The big striker shrugged his man expertly before setting Elliott Durrell free, with Durrell then finding Shaw whose shot was blocked, but Alabi reacted quickly to bundle the ball past Smith to make it 2-0.
Chester had the bit between their teeth but Aldershot wrestled back the momentum and came at the Blues for the final 20 minutes.
Substitute Kundai Benyu hit a post from distance before the same player hit the crossbar from a cross from the right, with defender Callum Reynolds blazing over from eight yards when he really should have found the net.
The fog rolled in off the fields and made visibility difficult and still the Shots came forward.
Aldershot dominated the late stages of the contest and Alex Lynch pulled off a superb one-handed save to deny substitute Charlie Walker after an effort rebounded off him following a challenge from Ryan Astles.
But Chester held firm to edge themselves closer to the play-offs and into seventh spot.
They were under the cosh for the final 20 minutes but there was some superb football played by the Blues and they were full value for the three points.
The energy, drive and commitment from the players was exceptional and, to a man, they all did their job very well indeed.
Alabi was excellent up top and there were also superb contributions from the midfield and the defence. A professional display.
They keep on defying the odds and they remain in the hunt over the Christmas period. Superb.
James Alabi: A superb shift from the striker who deserved the plaudits after this game.
Used his strength to his advantage and had the Shots defence rattled throughout. Won his headers and was always looking to make something happen.
The many scouts who came to see Kanu may well have another name in their little black book come 5pm.
