Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Glenn Hoddle believes on-loan defender Mikkel Bischoff's versatility could make him indispensable.
The 23-year-old, on loan from Manchester City, is primarily a central defender but Bischoff has not started a match for Hoddle in that position due to the impressive form of Joleon Lescott and Jody Craddock.
However, an injury to Rob Edwards meant Bischoff played at right-back in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Coventry City in the Championship.
Hoddle, who plans to resolve his own future soon, was impressed which could help secure Bischoff a permanent move to Molineux in the summer.
Hoddle said: "The Coventry match was a good opportunity for us to have a look at him. Our two centre-halves have been doing very well and I'd seen enough in training to suggest that Mikkel's a good user of the ball and that he could play at right-back.
"He did well, considering he hasn't played at that level for a very long time, it was good to see him get his first game."
Former Wolves skipper Keith Curle and John Hollins have been interviewed for the vacant manager's lost at Chester.
A quick appointment is not expected but the two candidates - as well as another unnamed applicant - met chairman Stephen Vaughan.
Current caretaker boss David Bell and Vauxhall Motors manager Owen Brown have also been linked with the job.
Curle has been without a job since leaving Mansfield in December and attended City's 2-2 draw with Bristol Rovers at the weekend as "homework."
The former England international said: "The place has got a lot of potential. Offthefield things are very professional, very friendly and very organised, which is a good foundation." n Coventry City striker Dele Adebola believes the Sky Blues' draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers can give Micky Adams' side the impetus to stay in the Championship.
Adams' team, who play Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, are 18th in the league - only two points above the relegation zone with three matches remaining.
But Adebola, who has been in excellent form recently, hopes Coventry's latest performance will ensure they beat the drop.
Adebola said: "Wolves are one of the better sides we have played this season - they should be well up the league. It just shows how far we have come. We've battled out a good 2-2 draw and, with the chances we had, possibly should have won."
Adebola, who scored his fourth goal with a stunning strike against Nottingham Forest recently, believes Coventry's supporters are finally seeing the best of him. He is anxious to make a significant contribution in their remaining fixtures.
He said: "I'm finding a bit more space and creating a few more chances, which throughout my time here I haven't been doing. Now I just need to put a few of them away but I'm definitely finding it more enjoyable in training and during games."
Adebola will hope to have helped secured Coventry's Championship status by the final day of the season - when the Sky Blues visit his old club Crewe Alexandra.
Crewe are also fighting for survival but the striker will have no hesitation in scoring the goal which condemns his former club to relegation if it saves City.
