When it comes to winning the FA Trophy, Johnny Hunt knows just what is required.
The Chester FC left back scored the winning penalty for Wrexham at Wembley in 2013 as the Dragons claimed a shootout success in the final against Grimsby Town.
Chester begin their FA Trophy quest with a first round clash at Evo-Stik Northern Premier League side Witton Albion on Saturday and Hunt, who has been in excellent form this season, is relishing the chance of a return visit in May.
"When this time of year comes round then you always fancy your chances the first couple of rounds, but once they are out of the way then you can start looking forward to the prize at the end," said the 26-year-old Liverpudlian.
"Any game is tough, especially away from home. But with our team we have got now and the form we are in you would fancy us against anyone. It's going to be a tough game but one I expect us to go and do a job in."
Last season was one to forget for the Blues.
A dismal performance on the field saw them just scrape to safety after then-caretaker boss Jon McCarthy turned the tide following Steve Burr's sacking.

And Hunt, a member of last season's squad, has been one of a number of players to have taken their game to a new level this season and believes that the intensity and desire under McCarthy this season is the best he has experienced.
"There is a drive for every game," he said.
"Every day, there hasn't been a day in training where we aren't at it – you can't be with the gaffer and Chris (Iwelumo).
"It's a drive I haven't seen for a long time, especially when it comes to the match day."
After the FA Trophy Chester have a relatively quiet Christmas schedule, with games against Aldershot Town and Solihull Moors the only two games remaining for them in 2016.
And having been written off by some at the start of the season as potential relegation candidates, Hunt says the gaze of the players and staff is firmly fixed on those above them and attempting to bridge the eight-point gap with the play-offs.
He added: "There is Aldershot in the league, two Solihull games and then Braintree away. Not looking past Aldershot but with the form we are in we are going in to all four games with a lot of confidence.
"You don't want to settle. You look at the league table there is the top six and then a second set of six. At the beginning of the season some people were saying we were going to go down, that we're not strong enough.
"It's only halfway and we want to catch teams above us. It only takes a run and then the next thing you know you are in the play-offs. If we can make it in to January mid-table then the play-offs is something to aim for."
