Last Updated: 08/09/17 4:55pm
Huddersfield forward Tom Ince is relishing the chance to silence the West Ham boo-boys on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports.
Ince, 25, has grown used to the abuse he receives from West Ham fans following his father Paul's acrimonious transfer from the London club to Manchester United in 1989.

Asked if he was prepared for more needle in the Sky Sports Premier League Monday night match, Ince said: "Yeah, I suppose you could say that.
"I'm not a popular name round there but it's part of football, it's one of those things.
"That's why I'm glad it's at the London stadium. There's a bit more space between the players and fans."
Ince, signed from Derby in July for an undisclosed fee, reported to be slightly more than the £11m Huddersfield paid Montpellier for striker Steve Mounie, lays the blame squarely on his dad.
"I do keep telling him that," said the former England U21 international. "West Ham and Leeds, I keep getting the same stick and it's not even my fault, it's your fault.
"It's one of those things. You have to take it on the chin. I always think that if they're booing you then you must be doing something right.
"Hopefully, if selected, if I score a goal at West Ham it will be a very nice moment for me. I'm looking forward to it.
"It's a great stadium, the fans are absolutely fantastic and it will be a great game to be involved in."
