CHESTER City manager Mark Wright describes tonight's match against Shrewsbury Town as a "massive, massive game".
Both clubs are well fancied in many quarters to take the Nationwide Conference title this season, and with a large crowd expected at the Deva Stadium, a tense and electric atmosphere is guaranteed.
City will be aiming to bounce back to winning ways, after losing their first match of the campaign on Saturday at Exeter City.
"We were extremely unlucky to lose at Exeter. We dominated for long periods at the beginning of both halves, and if we can replicate that sort of form for the full 90 minutes against Shrewsbury, then we have nothing to fear," said Wright.
"Shrewsbury have retained the majority of players who were with them in the Football League last season, as well as strengthening in certain key defensive and attacking areas.
Jimmy Quinn has moulded together an extremely competent squad."
Wright has a concern about the fitness of goalkeeper Wayne Brown, who missed Saturday's match at St James Park because of a neck injury, Ian McCaldon coming in for his first appearance of the season.
Chester will still be without the services of long-term injury victims Daryl Clare and Scott Guyett, but new signing Darryn Stamp will make his home debut.
With a large crowd expected City have asked all supporters to turn up early to avoid congestion at the turnstiles.
