FOREST Green striker Danny Wright is unlikely to celebrate if he scores at his former club Wrexham on Saturday.

Wright scored 23 goals in 80 appearances for the north Wales club but turned down a new deal at the end of last season and opted to join Forest Green on a free transfer.

The Gloucester-based striker said: “I’ve huge respect for the Wrexham fans, who were brilliant in the two fantastic years I had at the club.

"I probably won’t celebrate out of respect, but I am expecting a hostile reception, but it won’t affect my game and can inspire me."

Despite putting in some great shifts the 29-year-old has failed to score in the last 14 games, but Wright insists a little pep-talk from new boss Ady Pennock helped take his mind off his goal drought.

He added: “The gaffer pulled me and said I was doing a good job and his vote of confidence has taken the pressure off my shoulders and I feel goals are just around the corner.

“ The team are playing well of late since the transition of the new manager and he hasn’t put a foot wrong. The boys are more than happy-long may it continue."

Wrexham are 15th in the Conference Premier following Tuesday's 5-1 win at Dartford and are two points behind 13th placed Forest Green, who have won their last three matches.
