Leigh Mills insists there'll be no scores to settle when Brentford visit Gillingham tomorrow.
The central defender might have expected to be in the Bees squad for the trip to Priestfield when he joined Andy Scott's men on a one-year loan deal from Tottenham in the summer.
However, barely a month into the deal, Mills was sent back to Spurs and now finds himself in Mark Stimson's squad to face Scott's men this weekend.
But Mills insists such events are all part of a young footballer's life, and there's no time for vendettas.
He said: "There are no grudges towards Brentford as far as I'm concerned. A lot of stuff which was out of my hands went on, but I've moved on from that.
"People move around a lot in the lower leagues. You can end up with five or six previous clubs, so you can't afford grudges."
Mills' loan deal at Priestfield was extended from one month to five, taking him up to the January transfer window.
However, he is likely to be on the bench for Saturday's clash as another former Bee, Gary Richards, and central defensive partner Simon King have so far restricted him to seven first team appearances.
Richards, one of the few shining lights in the Brentford side relegated two years ago while on loan from Colchester, has since played for Southend before joining the Gills in the summer.
Two other former Bees are also unlikely to feature, however.
Alan Julian, who played more than 100 games for Stevenage after leaving Brentford four years ago, has kept clean sheets on his last two appearances in goal for the Gills but remains behind Simon Royce in the pecking order.
Striker Mark McCammon, who has featured for Millwall, Brighton and Doncaster since also exiting Griffin Park four years ago, is struggling with a recurrence of a ham-string injury.
Stimson's side should line up with Royce in goal and a back four of King, Richards, Barry Fuller and John Nutter.
Sierra Leone international Albert Jarrett will be on the right of midfield, with Mark Bentley and Curtis Weston in the engine room and another Spurs loanee, Andy Barcham ,on the left.
Gills stalwart Gary Mulligan will come in for the suspended Adam Miller and play just behind lone frontman Simeon Jackson.
Top scorer Jackson should be the danger-man as far as Scott's men are concerned.
His last minute equaliser at Barnet last Saturday took him into double figures for the season.
The Gills have been in decent form of late and sit ninth in League Two.
They started November with three straight wins before a 4-0 tonking at Bury, since when they are unbeaten - with draws against Rochdale and Barnet and a win over Chesterfield in the league, plus an FA Cup replay win at Stockport.
