PETER Sweeney insists he won't let sentiment get in the way of AFC Wimbledon's Capital One Cup cause ahead of tomorrow's clash with Millwall.
The Dons midfielder returns to his former club hoping to cause an upset as Neal Ardley's side take on the Championship side.
Sweeney is a boyhood Millwall fan and came through the ranks at the Den, clocking up 67 appearances before a move to Stoke City.
However, the 28-year-old is determined to claim bragging rights over his pals and secure a spot in the second round.
He said: “I had some of the best times of my career at Millwall; coming through the ranks, the FA Cup final and playing in Europe.
“It was a stepping stone for me and I got a move to Stoke off the back of it.
“They offered me a new contract but Stoke came in and paid good money for me. The club were at a stage when they were selling a lot of players, like Tim Cahill and Darren Ward.
“I grew up in Lewisham, so they're my team. All of my pals are Millwall fans as well. I'm sure I'll get a bit of stick!
“But I won't let sentiment get in the way. I'm a Wimbledon player and it's my job to do my best for them on the night.
"I haven't been this happy for a long time, so I'll be going there all guns blazing.”
