CHESTER City are likely to pitch new striker Jake Edwards into battle against his former club on Sunday.
The 29-year-old this week signed on loan until the end of the season from Conference outfit Exeter City and Blues boss Mark Wright will almost certainly throw him in from the start against Wrexham.
Edwards started his professional career with the Dragons in 1998 before leaving for Telford in 2000.
He also has experience playing for Yeovil Town and Blackpool.
Wright said: 'He's a 6ft 1in, strong lad who I've had a lot of time for over the years. He's been playing well below his standard (in the Conference) if I'm being totally honest.
'He gives us something we haven't got - a physical presence.
'I think we're lucky to have him.'
The Blues slumped to the foot of the League Two table on Saturday after a 1-0 home defeat to Cheltenham Town --their 15th loss in the last 18 games in all competitions.
Wright's main injury concern going into Sunday's derby is over midfielder Tom Curtis, who is struggling to recover from a heavy knock taken against the Robins.
Blues fans, meanwhile, are rallying in support of the club's fight for Football League survival.
At the AGM of the Independent Supporters' Association on Monday, members pledged to lead backing for the team in the League Two run-in.
The ISA, which has kept a low profile in the last two years, led a 'Great Escape' campaign during City's doomed fight for survival in 2000.
The motto for this season is 'Mission Impossible - We Can Do It' and a banner bearing those words will be unfurled by Chester fans at the club's next home game, against Macclesfield Town tomorrow week.
The broadcaster, writer and television producer Charlie Lambert was elected on to the ISA committee on Monday.
He said: 'The ISA has played a huge part in battling for the future of the club in the past. We don't know what challenges might lie ahead but it is vital the ISA is still around so supporters can be organised to get involved.
'As far as this season is concerned, we will lead support of the team and do all we can to help secure their League status.'
