AS A Town player, Dwayne Mattis came a cropper in an FA Cup second-round tie at Mansfield.
The Huddersfield-born former Republic of Ireland Under 21 midfielder, left, was a member of the Lou Macari-managed side mauled 4-0 at Field Mill five years ago.
On his only other appearance at this stage of the famous competition, in 2004, Bury were beaten 1-0 by Northampton at Sixfields.
So the 25-year-old, who moved across the Pennines during the 2004 close-season, is determined to be a driving force as the Shakers attempt to force their way into the third-round draw by beating League II rivals Chester at Gigg Lane.
Tomorrow's clash won't attract the attention that the first-round showdown at Weymouth received.
The 2-2 draw was shown live by the BBC, who have selected the Salisbury versus Nottingham Forest tie for special treatment on Sunday.
Mattis, who includes fellow former Town player Paul Scott and ex-Emley striker Glynn Hurst among his teammates, was on target twice as Bury beat the non-leaguers 4-3 in the replay, and will be desperate to put his side into the hat along with the Premiership big boys.
Bury boss Chris Casper knows victory over Chester could earn a money-spinning tie with the likes of his former club, Manchester United.
"That's what we want. We're one game away from possibly playing United in front of 75,000," he said.
"We're not underestimating Chester because it's going to be a difficult game. But we're at home and we've got to make the running like we did against Weymouth."
Scott is expected to recover in time from a facial injury sustained during last Saturday's 2-1 loss at Swindon, who are themselves in cup action at home to Morecambe.
Former Town player and coach Mark Lillis is assistant to manager Sammy McIlroy at the seaside club, and the pair are aiming to guide their club to the third round for the fourth time in their history.
"We know we are in for a tough game but we are looking forward to it," said McIlroy, three times a cup finalist, and once a winner, with Manchester United.
"It's a great day for the supporters, the directors and the players, who have been asked to do things they never would in any other competition.
"They have been getting a lot of publicity, but they will have their feet on the ground tomorrow.
"If we could get into the third round it would be a hell of an achievement, like reaching a final.
"We will be the underdogs but we are going there without fear."
Town's first-round conquerors Blackpool visit MK Dons while their League I hosts a week tomorrow, Leyton Orient, go to Torquay.
