DENIS Smith says victory over Darlington on Saturday would be the perfect way to kick-start a new era for the club, writes Paul Wheelock.
The visit of the Quakers to the Racecourse ground will be the first game the Dragons have played on their own patch since last week's historic High Court hearing.
The decision to strip controversial owner Alex Hamilton of the Mold Road stadium and hand it back to Wrexham's administrators has given Reds fans real belief their club can move out of the most traumatic period in its 133-year existence.
Boss Smith, who continues to operate without a contract, was ecstatic with the news.
And now he wants his team to turn in a top performance against Darlington on Saturday, in front of what is expected to be a bumper home crowd.
Smith said: 'The decision is a massive step forward for the club as it takes away a lot of the uncertainty over our future.
'It has put us in a very strong position because the club has never owned the ground before, apart from the one day when the lease was transferred.
'I'm very happy for the supporters. It should be a good day on Saturday and we'll be looking to give them extra reason to celebrate with a win.'
The Racecourse ruling capped a memorable week for the manager.
Last Wednesday he was given a special award by Wrexham Erddig Rotary Club for his work in keeping the club alive, while on Friday, he was inducted into the Official Supporters' Association Hall of Fame - just four years after taking over as boss.
Smith said: 'It's been very pleasing for me. To be entered into the Hall of Fame after such a short time was a great honour. And I was also delighted to receive an award from the Rotary Club. So from a personal point of view, I couldn't have asked for more.
'But what I'm here to do is win football matches and we didn't do that on Saturday.'
The 2-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers extended Wrexham's winless away run in League Two to seven games.
It came on the back of last Tuesday's 4-3 loss at Blackpool, which brought an end to their defence of the LDV Vans Trophy at the first-round stage.
So a furious Smith made his men re-watch the Bristol game on video - a jolt he was hoping would have the desired effect for Tuesday's trip to Peterborough United - the match the Dragons were preparing for as the Mail went to press.
Returning hero Juan Ugarte was definitely ruled out of that one, and is a major doubt for Saturday's clash with Darlington, too.
Smith will also be without top-scorer Mark Jones at the weekend, after the Wales international picked up his fifth booking of the season against Rovers.
