Chester FC boss Steve Burr is confident of seeing his side make it two wins in seven days, but says this weekend's visit of struggling Torquay United will be a test.
The Gulls currently sit third from bottom in the National League and have registered just one win in their last 10 games, losing their last two. They did, though, progress to round two in the FA Trophy but needed a replay against Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division side Chesham United, eventually prevailing 2-0 on Tuesday evening.
But Blues boss Burr, whose side won 2-0 at AFC Telford in the FA Trophy on Saturday, is wary of facing a side on a poor run of form, having been stung by a struggling Woking side last month, and expects player-manager Kevin Nicholson's Torquay side to provide a stern examination for his Blues side.
"Kevin (Nicholson) has gone in there and he'll be stamping his own authority on the squad and what he can do," said Burr.
"When you look at them last year to where they are now, they have had a lot of problems. But I always think that if we are at our maximum and get the players performing like I know we can then I'm always confident that we can beat teams in this division.
"We're confident after the win at Telford but it's important we build some momentum now going into a busy Christmas period."
Ex-Torquay winger Jordan Chapell is set to feature against his former employers for the first time since leaving Plainmoor for the Blues in the summer.
