FC UNITED will hand Jerome Wright a debut when they go seeking revenge over Atherton Collieries at Hilton Park (3pm).
The former Maine Road winger signed for the Rebels before Christmas, but his first appearance has been delayed by a three-match suspension.
"I am excited about seeing him play," says manager Karl Marginson, who also welcomes back Josh Howard after suspension but will be without left-back Alex Mortimer (hamstring) and has doubts over Garey Sampson and Matty Taylor.
"Jerome was on Oldham's books and was out for 18 months with a bad injury. But he has everything - he is quick, has a good left peg and is brave."
Salford City snatched back top spot in the North West Counties League with a 6-2 win at St Helens Town on Wednesday.
