John McCombe wants to lead Chester on a successful run in the FA Cup as the Blues captain prepares to tackle Kidderminster Harriers.

Chester begin their campaign at Aggborough on Saturday in the fourth qualifying round tie, with the experienced defender having enjoyed a run to the second round last season with Macclesfield Town, knocking out League One side Walsall in the process.

In a career which has seen McCombe play for the likes of Hereford, Port Vale and York City, the 32-year-old has experienced playing at the likes of Blackburn, Fulham and QPR in cup competitions, and is eyeing up a return to Ewood Park or a plum tie with the likes of Shrewsbury or Portsmouth if the Blues can defeat their National League North opponents this weekend.

“I’ve played in the FA Cup quite a lot and I’ve had some good experiences in the competition,” he said. “I’ve been to some Premier League teams in the cups and also experienced it at the other end, going to some small lower non-league grounds so there’s been a few different experiences in the cup.”
