Bristol Rvs. prepare to entertain Chester City at Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The majority of those games have been won by the Pirates.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Memorial Stadium was less than a year ago, in January 2006, the Pirates carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League Two match.
