NEWLY appointed Stafford Rangers manager Graham Heathcote wants to make the Marston Road ground a frightening place for opponents.
Having played at Stafford on numerous occasions in an Altrincham career spanning over 500 appearances, Heathcote said: "We need to get a buzz about the place.
"This should be a frightening place to come. It's not at the moment, for whatever reason, but it should be - and it was!"
Heathcote, who also managed Altrincham for eight years, said: "I would like to dedicate the win (against Stocksbridge) to the Jim Sergeant's (former Boro legend) of this world, who I played against and I know what Staffiord Rangers werev like.
"One of the reasons I took this job was the history of the club.
"And I want to bring it back for the likes of those players who played for Rangers in the seventies and eighties and were absolutely fantastic.
"That is the aim, Let's hope it is the start of things to come."
Heathcote, who has confirmed the appointment of Chris Adam as his assistant and Martin Prentice, who selected the team against Stocksbridge, as head coach, faces a long first away-day trip to tenth place Blyth Spartans on Saturday.
A win on the North-East coast could possibly lift Rangers, who are now 14 points adrift of safety, up a place if Stocksbridge lose at home to Marine.
Rangers then follow up with fixtures against three of the bottom six, at home to winless Droylsden on January 18, followed by Grantham (away, Jan 25) and Frickley Athletic (home, Feb 1).
On the injury front, defender Paris Bateman will almost certainly miss the rest of the season after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the Boxing Day clash at Nantwich. Fabrice Kasiama is sidelined with a similar injury.
