Trinity begin their cup run at the Tetley’s Stadium and are firm favourites to progress at the expense of Neil Kelly’s Championship side but Chester is wary of overconfidence.

He said: “It’s a tricky cup tie. It’s a small pitch and never a nice place to go. We are going to give them the respect they deserve and we are going to go with a pretty strong side.

“We are not taking anything for granted. We have seen a lot of Dewsbury this year with the likes of Max [Jowitt] and Anthony Walker going out on dual registration there.

“There have been a couple of upsets already this year so we are looking for a professional performance from our boys this week.”

Chester added: “They [Rams] have got nothing to lose. Everybody expects us to win and that’s what makes them a very dangerous side.

“We need to focus on what we have been doing well over the last 13 rounds. I am confident that if we do those things well we will come away with a positive result.”
