A home draw is top of Steve Burr's wish-list for tonight's FA Cup second round draw.
Chester reached the second round for the first time in eight years with a 2-1 win at League Two club Southend United on Saturday.
Goals from Ben Heneghan and Craig Mahon sealed a deserved win for the Blues at Roots Hall, earning the club £18,000 in prize money and a share of the 4,047 gate.
There are some mouthwatering ties possible in the next round with rivals Crewe Alexandra, Tranmere Rovers and Wrexham still in the competition but with the third round and a potential money-spinning only one win away many fans will be hoping for a kinder draw.
Burr said: "Hopefully we can get a home tie or if we do get an away I want it somewhere reasonably close so a lot more of our supporters can travel."
Chester had the backing of 322 travelling fans at Southend despite mammoth trips to Dover and Eastleigh over the past few weeks.
Burr said: "To bring 300 to Southend with the travel we had to Eastleigh last week was fantastic. The support was immense and you could see how much it meant to them and the lads and it's terrific.
"It's brilliant support and I can't speak highly enough of them and their coach like our coach would have been bouncing all the way back to Chester."
Chester will be ball number 24 in the draw, which takes place at the National Football Museum in Manchester and is being broadcast live on BBC Two from 7pm.
Ex-England international and three times FA Cup winner Martin Keown and grassroots coach Jason Craven will be drawing the balls from the hat.
Ties will take place over the weekend of December 6 so the Blues scheduled home game with Lincoln City will be moved to another date.
Chester last competed in the second round in 2006 when Keith Curle's side lost to Bury in a replay only to be reinstated when the FA ruled the Shakers had fielded an ineligible player.
