WREXHAM FC chiefs are preparing to place the club into administration and lose 10 league points.
Supporters claim it will be the safest place for the Dragons in the current crisis.
Club directors Dave Griffiths and Dave Bennett said they have no choice as a petition to wind up the club goes to the High Court on Wednesday.
It was lodged by the Inland Revenue over a £900,000 unpaid tax bill.
The directors want to stop the club going into liquidation.
Former chairman Mark Guterman is trying to buy out current owner Alex Hamilton in an 11th hour action which could stop the winding-up petition.
But Wrexham Supporters Trust believe the best option is for the club to go into administration.
WST spokesman Simon Johnson said: "We held a meeting with Mr Bennett and Mr Griffiths on Monday and we had insolvency experts Ward and Co to advise us.
"They advised us that administration would be be best option.
"It would mean the club would not go into liquidation and would be temporarily safe from the creditors.
"The administrators would then be able to investigate the transfer of the club's freehold."
Fans want controversial owner Mr Hamilton to sell the club. But they are also concerned about the prospect of Mr Guterman, who resigned as chairman earlier this year, taking over.
Mr Hamilton recently rejected two bids which were made by WST to buy him out.
The Football League has confirmed it will dock the club 10 points, plunging it into a relegation battle if it goes into administration.
The directors said the priority now was getting as many fans through the turnstiles as possible.
Wrexham MP Ian Lucas recently joined the battle. He has asked the Inland Revenue to investigate the 2002 transaction when Wrexham FC negotiated the £300,000 purchase of the Racecourse freehold from Wolverhampton & Dudley Breweries.
It was then transferred to Damens Ltd - a company owned by Mr Hamilton - for a nominal fee.
But the controversial chairman hit back at Mr Lucas saying he should have approached him if there were any concerns about the deal.
