Gateshead return to The International Stadium on Tuesday, January 24 to face Wrexham.
Despite remaining in the relegation zone, The Heed are on a five-game unbeaten streak and claimed a 3-1 Isuzu FA Trophy win at Oldham Athletic last time out.
Gateshead’s last league game came 17 days ago, when frontman Danny Elliott continued his impressive goalscoring run to earn a point away to play-off contenders Barnet.
Wrexham have found it somewhat difficult travelling to the North East over recent years, with their last victory at The International Stadium coming in 2013.
The Welsh outfit are currently second on goal difference, with a tight battle against Notts County for top spot.
Phil Parkinson’s side are 15 games unbeaten in the National League following an injury time winner through Aaron Hayden against Maidstone United at the weekend.
“We always want to test ourselves against the biggest clubs that we can,” said first-team manager Mike Williamson.
“This is certainly going to be one of them – Wrexham are a massive club and their whole squad are Football League players.
“It’ll be a great test for us, we’re looking forward to it, and we just have to focus on how we play.”
“We need to get ready for the battle at Gateshead,” said Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson after Saturday’s victory.
“They’re a team who are scrapping for everything and for every game, if we want to win it then we have to earn it.
“It will take everybody giving everything but I’m sure we’ll get that – the lads will go up there in good spirits.”
James Montgomery is unlikely to feature due to illness, however Filip Marschall will be eligible to play after returning to the club on loan from Aston Villa.

Gateshead fell to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of league leaders Wrexham at Gateshead International Stadium.
Goals from Tom O’Connor, Paul Mullin and Ollie Palmer ended The Heed’s five-game unbeaten run, as Wrexham’s clinical second half display ensured they went top of the league table.
Both sides would be motivated to come away with three points with Gateshead potentially being able to jump out of the relegation zone, while Wrexham had the chance to regain the top spot in the National League table.
Mike Williamson named Filip Marschall in the side in replace of James Montgomery who was absent through illness while Quevin Casto was named to make his home debut.
It was the man on his home debut who got the first chance of the match in the fifth minute, Quevin Castro powered forward before he unleashed a low-driven shot straight at Mark Howard.
Wrexham retaliated with their own chance in the 18th minute, a floated ball sent towards the back post found Ollie Palmer who guided the ball towards the top corner but Filip Marschall managed to get up well to make a comfortable catch.
Gateshead looked the better of the two sides in the first half, Danny Elliott hit a powerful strike towards the near-post which called Howard into action with a great save in the 28th minute.
The best chance of the match fell to Adam Campbell in the 43rd minute, Kamil Conteh linked up with the Gateshead midfield out play out of Wrexham’s high press before he played a long ball to Campbell but his shot was saved well by Howard.
Wrexham’s first chance of the second-half give allowed them to break the deadlock in the 61st minute, a long throw was sent into the box which wasn’t dealt with and O’Connor found the back of the net.
Six minutes later Wrexham doubled their advantage, Eliott Lee tried his luck from far out which forced Marschall into a save but Palmer was there to follow up on the loose ball to score the visitors second of the game.
Two minutes into added time Wrexham found a third, after being played in one on one Mullin slotted the ball calmly into the far corner.
