Chester FC head to The Shay tonight to take on FC Halifax Town, who lost 3-1 at promoted Boreham Wood at the weekend.
The West Yorkshire club will include three former Blues in Kingsley James, Matt Glennon and Matty Brown, while Chester striker Ross Hannah had a loan spell at Halifax in 2012.
Ahead of each game this season, The Chronicle will be getting the inside track on the Blues opponents from supporters and journalists who knows them best.
We spoke to Tom Scargill, who covers the Shaymen for the Halifax Courier, about what to expect tonight from Neil Aspin's side:
It was a disappointing start to the season but were Halifax as bad as the result suggests on Saturday?
There wasn't a lot between the teams so no, not really. It was defensive errors that cost them. The first came from a long ball straight through but Halifax got one back to make it 1-1 at half-time and then hit the post with a free-kick, which could have changed the game. It was another mistake for the second goal and the third could have been avoided too.
The number of ins and outs this summer points to Halifax being a team in transition so was it to be expected the squad would need time to settle down?
That's right and the manager has said he will have to be patient. Some will come in and do as expected, some will do better than expected and some will do worse than expected. The manager has been preaching the important of patience, but there were a few posts about relegation on the fans' forums after Saturday, which is madness. In previous sessions there's been four or five coming in and the same leaving, this season 10 have come in and 11 or 12 have gone out so it's been more of a revolution.
Chester fans know Kingsley James and Matty Brown well. How did the pair do at the weekend?
Kingsley James looked good. He was sitting in front of the back four and spreading the ball well, although it took him a little while to find his passing range. Matty Brown was beaten too easily for the third goal and his partner Hamza Bencherif was caught out for the third. It wasn't a great start from them but they've got experience in the Football League so I'm sure they'll come good.
Which players are likely to pose the biggest threat to Chester tonight and over the course of the season?
It's difficult to say and there probably isn't going to be one player who stands out. Josh MacDonald, who was with Middlesbrough before playing in the Northern League for Marske United, has done well and Neil Aspin has been really pleased with his attitude. He gets the train down from where he lives to Harrogate or York, where the manager and his assistant are from, and goes to training with them. He was a bit of a gamble but he's looked good.
Probable starting line-up for FC Halifax Town:
Matt Glennon, James Bolton, Matty Brown, Hamza Bencherif, Scott McManus, Jake Hibbs, Kingsley James, Elliott Whithouse, Josh MacDonald, Sean Tuton, Jordan Burrow. Subs: Andy Bishop, Sam Walker, Connor Hughes, Graham Hutchinson, Jordan Porter.
