Chester travel to Nuneaton Town (3pm) with an excellent chance to break into the Vanarama Conference's top half providing an extra incentive to make it four games unbeaten.
Four of the five clubs above them in the table face each other this afternoon, so a three point return from Liberty Way could see them climb three or four places.
Steve Burr has been elated with his side's past few performances but has warned them not to underestimate Nuneaton, the club that gave him his first taste of management.
Chester are full of confidence following thrilling 4-2 win at Dartford on Tuesday and good results against promotion candidates Bristol Rovers and Gateshead, whereas second-bottom Boro have not won in six and were battered 5-0 at Dover Athletic in the week.
Burr told The Chronicle: "I know how football works and what players are like, confidence will be low but sometimes when you are on the end of a 5-0 kicking there can be a backlash."
“When you have had a beating like that, you want to prove people wrong and make up for it so we have to be on our guard.
“Some of our football in the last couple of games has been excellent and the way we are playing now we have nothing to fear from anyone.”
Chester will be missing star midfielder Kingsley James, who has been outstanding since arriving from Hereford United over the summer, and Ben Heneghan, Josh O'Keefe and Peter Winn remain doubtful.
A lack of natural replacements for James could see the manager switch things around although promising teenager Liam Blake might come into the reckoning.
Loan pairing Matty Hughes and Rhys Oates have forged a good understanding and could cause problems for a defence that has been creaking like an old shed door.
Boro made good progress under Kevin Wilkin and took four points off the Blues last season but when he moved to Wrexham in March, things began to unravel.
Brian Reid’s background made the club’s description of him being the ‘ideal man’ to replace Wilkin seem odd and so it proved.
Reid lasted only 10 games before he was sacked and in came the experienced Liam Daish, whose appointment looked a far shrewder move.
Daish, who applied for the Chester job after Neil Young's departure, has so far been unable to turn things around. Boro have picked up only seven points in his 10 league games in charge and are eight points off safety.
His side have lost three in a row, the most recent being that five goal humiliation at Dover in the week, and confidence is low.
Daish, a rugged centre half for Cambridge, Birmingham and Coventry, is not the kind of man to back down from the fight.
“There’s a long time left for a recovery, but it’s got to start now,” Daish told the Coventry Telegraph.
“We’ve got to start taking responsibility now. But we’ve got to be able to help ourselves in that.
“Every game is major for us. Performances haven’t been too bad, but it’s about results.”
Daish has made 10 signings and the reshaping of his squad has seen Craig Curran, who Blues fans will remember from his loan spell in the Conference North title winning campaign, depart.
His squad includes ex-Wrexham midfielder Lee Fowler and Michael Gash, both of whom played under Burr at Kidderminster, and captain Gareth Dean from suspension.
Wales under 21 keeper Christian Dibble replaces James Wren in goal after signing on loan from Barnsley and Adam Dawson has rejoined the club on loan from Leciester.
