GILLINGHAM defender Leon Legge insists he's got a point to prove when he lines up against Brentford tomorrow.
The no-nonsense centre-back clocked up more than 100 games during a three-and-a-half year spell in TW8 before he was allowed to join the Gills in January following a successful loan spell.
The 28-year-old will come face-to-face with his former team-mates when the Bees travel to Priestfield and insists he's got extra motivation ahead of the League One clash.
He said: “There's always an added incentive when you play your old club and I definitely feel I've got a point to prove.
“I felt I needed a fresh start. I was told I had a part to play, yet found myself out of the team.
“I needed to move on for the sake of my career. Hopefully I can put in a good performance.”
Legge bagged the player of the year award in his first season with the Bees after Andy Scott plucked him from non-league side Tonbridge Angels in 2009.
The ex-Lewes man insists he has fond memories of his time in west London, but says he won't let sentiment get in the way at the weekend.
“I had some great times at Brentford,” he said. “I'll never forget my first season winning player of the year at the club.
“Our League Cup run and playing at Wembley in the JPT final were also highlights.
“But I'm a Gillingham player now and doing well for them is all I'm focused on.”
The Gills have lost all three games this season without scoring a goal, but Legge added: “No one's pressing the panic button.
“It's a long season and we've been a bit unlucky. Hopefully we cant turn that round on Saturday.”
