Chester have won all seven league encounters played to date — including eye-catching home wins over FC Halifax Town and Guiseley and away victories at Oxford City, Altrincham and Solihull Moors.
The Pilgrims, meanwhile, showed resilience in last weekend’s 2-0 win at Colwyn Bay to end a four-match losing streak and they will need more of the same to extract home comforts against Neil Young’s newly-promoted side.
United are expected to have full-back Conor Marshall in contention following an Achilles injury, but striker Mark Jones (ankle) and midfielder Matt Wilson (knee) are both on the sidelines still.
Spencer Weir-Daley will be hoping to build on his impressive record of five goals from five appearances so far this season.
Chester’s on-loan Macclesfield Town striker Ben Mills plays the final game of his initial month with the Blues — having already netted nine times in seven matches.
United’s last encounter against Chester (City) arrived in April 2007 when a Jamie Stevens goal handed the Pilgrims all three points in a 1-0 home win.
The Pilgrims are priced 4/1 with Blue Square Bet to record a home win on Saturday. Chester are the odds-on favourites at 8/15 while the draw is available at 11/4.
