MARK Wright's selection hand will be strengthened for Chester City's testing trip to Swindon Town tomorrow.
Jamie Hand is available again after serving a two-match suspension, while defender Ashley Westwood could return to the squad to add competition for places at centreback.
Westwood has missed the last six games with a hamstring injury but should now be ready for a first-team comeback.
On the minus side, Laurence Wilson could sit out tomorrow's game as his ankle injury is still causing him problems.
The wing-back made a brief appearance from the bench in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Bury - and Blues boss Wright did not like what he saw.
'He's not right yet,' insisted Wright. 'We put him on in that game because he was getting so frustrated in the treatment room. But when he went on there, I could see he's not right.'
Unbeaten in their last six League Two matches on the road, Chester will be looking to make it seven at the County Ground tomorrow.
But Wright knows his players will have their work cut out against one of the division's high-fliers.
He said: 'Swindon are a very good side, I said that earlier in the season and I stand by it. They're going to be more than a handful on the day.
'They're a big, strong, useful side who are difficult to beat, but we are unbeaten in our last six games away from home, which is fantastic.
'We've won four and drawn two so we should go into it pretty confident.'
