Even the bookmakers are struggling to call the outcome when Chester FC host FC Halifax Town live on BT Sport tonight (7.45pm).
Points have been all to easy for visiting sides to collect at the Swansway Chester Stadium with the Blues holding the third worst home record in the league.
Given Halifax are only two points outside the play offs, one might expect the bookies to offer short odds on them taking maximum points back to Yorkshire.
But the Shayman have been as poor on the road as the Blues have been on home soil, with only one away win all season.
Blues midfielder Jason Jarrett - who started last season with Fax - joked the meeting between his current and previous employers has draw 'written all over it' and he might be right.
But draws are not good enough for the relegation-threatened hosts and Steve Burr knows his side must start winning home games or else Skrill North football beckons.
Burr plans to hand debuts to imposing keeper Aaron Chapman and centre back Matty Brown having signed the pair on loan from League Two leaders Chesterfield.
Regular stopper John Danby has performed well this season, but there are signs his confidence has taken a hiding over the past few weeks.
Skipper George Horan is as tough as teak but his long-standing ankle problem has worsened and he will miss out as he prepares for an operation.
Jarrett will probably partner Bond in centre midfield with Burr again likely to field John Rooney, Jamie Reed and Matty Taylor behind top scorer Gareth Seddon, who netted 13 times for the Shaymen last season.
Both sides gained promotion from the Conference North last season, with Chester running away with the league and Halifax coming up through the play offs.
While the hosts have found the top tier of non-league tough, the visitors have made the step up with ease and are very much in contention for a top five finish.
Retaining Danny Gardner and Lee Gregory meant manager Neil Aspin was again able call on his star duo from last season. Gardner has now been sold to Chesterfield but Gregory remains and his 20 goals see him topping the scoring charts.
On the other hand, former Blues boss Neil Young lost the services of Antoni Sarcevic and Danny Williams and replacing the likes of Matty McGinn, Nathan Jarman and Tony Gray has proved much harder than anticipated.
Burr is not surprised to see Fax doing so well and expects them to provide a difficult test for his side, with Gregory the main threat.
Burr said: "Lee is a lad I remember from when he was with Staveley Miners Welfare. I watched him a few times and I actually tried to sign him.
"Neil Aspin is a good friend of mine and I know how good a job he's done with all of his clubs so it's not surprise to me to see them doing so well.
"But I'm more concerned at the moment with what we are doing and getting that right so we can get some results."
Conceding nine goals in three straight defeats has seen the Blues drop back into the bottom four, but Burr said the mood among the players remained upbeat.
"The one side of things that has been very encouraging is how hard the lads are training and how determined they are to do well," he said.
"As a group the players are working as hard as ever and there is a very good atmosphere but I know that will get even better with a few more wins.
"The support we've had since I arrived has been unbelievable, especially given the position we are in.
"Now I want us to give the fans something to cheer and some hope that we can survive this season."
Halifax won for the first time in 2014 last time out hammering Sailsbury City 5-1 at the Shay but boss Aspin has stressed the need to improve away from home.
“We can’t hide from the fact that we haven’t done ourselves justice with our away form, away from home we’ve been very poor and we need to be much better," he told the club's official website.
Aspin has signed 19-year-old Leeds United midfielder Simon Lenighan on loan and he is expected to be included in the squad tonight.
