Craig Beattie is hoping that his Old Firm derby experience will give him an advantage when he takes the field for West Bromwich Albion against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.
The former Celtic striker, who has been a revelation since he joined Albion in the summer, played four times against Rangers in Scotland and is expecting a match of similar intensity against Wolves.
"I'm hoping my Old Firm derby experience will stand me in good stead," Beattie said. "I've been lucky enough to be involved in four Old Firm clashes in front of crowds of more than 50,000. And I think the Glasgow derby can be classed as one of the biggest in the world.
"Having experienced defeat twice and victory twice against Rangers with Celtic, no one has to tell me how important Sunday's game is to Baggies fans."
Ronnie Wallwork's loan spell with Huddersfield Town, the Coca-Cola League One club, has been extended for the second time. He will now remain in Yorkshire until December 29.
The 30-year-old midfield player will be available for Huddersfield's matches against Leyton Orient, Southend United, Bristol Rovers, Cheltenham Town, Crewe Alexandra and Northampton Town, as well as their FA Cup second-round tie against Grimsby Town.
Wallwork joined Huddersfield in September and has so far scored twice in ten starts for Andy Ritchie's men. Albion are unable to recall the former Manchester United man during the length of his loan.
Bobby Williamson, the Chester City manager, will continue to monitor John Hartson, even though the former Wales international striker rejected the chance to join the club on loan from Albion.
"We will keep an eye on Hartson, but we've also got to move on and we have other players who we are looking at," Williamson said. "I've been monitoring John's progress for some time and initially spoke to him last summer when I sounded him out about his career aspirations and how I would be more than happy to bring him to Chester at some stage in the future and I spoke to him again last Friday."
"I've been an admirer of John for a long time and know the guy really well. There is no doubt he could have done a job for us at Chester but sadly that will not happen in this window."
