Gainsborough Trinity's Darryn Stamp out to silence Wrexham boo-boys
Darryn Stamp has already silenced the Wrexham fans once and he is determined to gag them again at the Northolme on Saturday.
The influential Gainsborough Trinity striker was subjected to chants of 'Chester reject' by the Dragon die-hards last Saturday as they picked on the former Deva Stadium favourite.
But the cross-border rivalry is only spurring the towering striker on to repeat his goalscoring heroics, which left over 3,000 Welshmen speechless last weekend.
"I heard the shouts, I think that goes back to my Chester days," said Stamp, who briefly brought Trinity level as his 27th minute header cancelled out Danny Wright's opener for the Dragons in the 3-1 defeat.

"I was getting quite a bit of stick from them. In some ways that drives me on and gives me that bit of extra incentive to score and prove them wrong.
"There is no doubt about it, it would be great to score this weekend."
Breaking through that defence on Saturday is going to be a tough ask, though, especially as Trinity need to do it at least twice if they are to bring the game level.
However, Stamp feels that proving they can do it at the Racecourse Ground in the first leg gives them the confidence they need to perform a miraculous turnaround at the Northolme.
"I think it is possible. To come to Wrexham and get a goal is a big statement," said Stamp.
"I don't think many teams have done that this season. So for us to do that is a good start.
"Although we are a league below, we have got that goal. So there is nothing stopping us from doing the same next week."
And Stamp says Wrexham should be prepared for a full on assault from Trinity.
"We set our stall out at Wrexham to go and stifle them a little bit and not rushing around at 100mph," said Stamp.
"But we will be flying out of the box on Saturday. If we get an early goal it will be a completely different game.
"And while I know I'm not going to be buzzing about at my age, I'll try and give the centre backs a tough time."
