Wrexham manager Denis Smith will take a closer look at two players currently on trial at the club during their friendly against Manchester City on Wednesday.
Striker Blair Sturrock and Trinidadian Josh Johnson will both be under scrutiny during the game with the Premiership outfit at The Racecourse Ground.
Sturrock, son of Sheffield Wednesday manager Paul, linked up with the squad on Tuesday after becoming a free agent following his release by Rochdale at the end of last season.
The 25-year-old scored an impressive six goals in just 15 starts last term but did not do enough to win a new deal at Spotland.
He is now hoping for a fresh start with The Dragons and will be out to impress against Stuart Pearce's men, along with 24-year-old Johnson who is midway through his 10-day trial in North Wales.
"We take a look at a number of players during pre-season, so this is a useful opportunity to look at Blair in a match situation as compared to training," Smith told the club's official website.
"Josh Johnson joined in on Saturday and will also feature again tomorrow evening."
