CHESTER City last night made enquiries about the availability of the Northampton Town striker Darryn Stamp.

The 24-year-old frontman, who joined the Sixfields club last year in a £50,000 move from Nationwide Conference outfit Scarborough, was unable to gain a regular place in the Northampton side towards the end of last season and his availability has alerted City manager Mark Wright.

"He is the sort of big target man that I am looking for and we have made an enquiries to Northampton about his current situation and possible availability," said Wright.

"It is no secret that I am looking for this type of player to supplement our squad, so we are monitoring the situation closely."

Yorkshire-born Stamp, registered four goals in 22 league appearances for the Cobblers last season.

Meanwhile, Wright is hopeful that his injury list is beginning to reduce.

Striker Michael Twiss came through a reserve team game on Tuesday night, scoring twice, and he could be available for Saturday's home game against Forest Green Rovers at the Deva Stadium.

Central defenders Phil Bol-land and Scott Guyatt have started light training, and could be available for selection in a fortnight.

However, the City manager is concerned about the fitness of midfield player Andy Harris, who injured his wrist during Tuesday's victory against Tam-worth at the Deva Stadium.

"We are monitoring Andy's injury closely, and we will just have to wait and see," added Wright.
