Charlie Oatway insists he bears Brentford FC's Marcus Bean no ill - despite having his leg broken by him three years ago.
Former Brentford favourite Oatway will come up against both Bean and his former club on Sunday when Havant & Waterlooville, where he is now assistant manager, host the Bees in an FA Cup first round tie.
But the 34-year-old, who is still fondly remembered at Griffin Park despite only making 57 appearances between 1997-1999, holds no grudge towards Bean.
It was a challenge from the Bees midfielder, then at QPR, which crocked Oatway, then at Brighton, during a game at the Withdean Stadium on Boxing Day 2005.
Oatway said: "I know a few of the current Brentord squad - Nathan Elder from when he was at Brighton; I played against Adam Newton; and Marcus Bean broke my leg!
"I've not come across him since, but I don't hold anything against him. I've had a lot of injuries in my career and I've forgotten about it. It's not an issue."
