Chester FC boss Steve Burr hopes his in-form team can make light of a poor record for both he and the club at Dover Athletic this afternoon (3pm).
The Blues have failed to register a win in three previous visits to Dover while Burr too has struggled for results at the Crabble Athletic Ground as a maneger.
Last season Chester lost 2-0 but travel to Kent full of confidence having started the 2015-16 campaign with back-to-back 1-0 wins against Braintree Town and FC Halifax Town.
Burr said: "I've not got a great record down there over the years and it's a difficult place to go, but for us I think it's a good time to go. The pitch will be decent, we've had a good start and confidence will be high.
"Dover are spending some money this year with flying up to Barrow and things like that. Things we can only dream of really because it would be nice to fly down there and back.
"They're bigging it up this year with their squad and they believe they can get promoted with the side they've got so we know how tough it's going to be and we look forward to it."

Dover lost 2-1 at Barrow on the opening afternoon but struck a late winner midweek to beat Burr's former club Kidderminster Harriers 3-2.
Chris Kinnear led them to eighth place last season and Burr respects the experienced Whites boss.
Burr said: "They beat Kiddy the other night 3-2 and we had the game watched. We had them watched at Barrow too so we know the type of players they've brought in.
"They brought Jamie Grimes in, who I spoke to in the summer, and with Stefan Payne up front, the boy Ricky Miller who can cause a few problems out wide and Nicky Deverdics in the centre of midfield, they've got some good players.
"I've a lot of time for Chris. He had a little spell away from Dover and I think that showed that in the fact when he was away they didn't really achieve much."
Chester will check on the fitness of Craig Hobson, who sat out the win at Halifax on Tuesday night, but Craig Mahon impressed in his place and will continue on the wing should he fail to cover.
