Chester FC manager Steve Burr reckons his side will have to do it the hard way again to secure a place in the first round of the FA Cup.
His team have landed a trip to National League rivals Altrincham in the fourth qualifying round meaning his wait for a home draw in the competition continues.
Chester lost twice to the Robins last season, including being thumped 4-1 at Moss Lane on New Year's Day, and the ex-Kidderminster Harriers boss admits the draw could have been much kinder.
However, he believes the Blues will be able to count on a strong travelling support for the game, scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, October 24.
And a win would not only send the club into the first round but earn them £12,500 in prize money, some of which the manager hopes will be allocated for squad strengthening.
"I would prefer a home draw every time and since I've been at the club we've not had much luck with that," said Burr.
"We had a tough passage last year having to go to Stockport, Southend and Barnsley so that's four away draws in a row now.
"It won't be easy at Altrincham but I know we'll take a great following there as we did to Stockport and hopefully we can have another good run and give the club a boost financially.
"The FA Cup can be massive for clubs like ours and if we can do put a run together than that will help us and should allow us to get stronger."
