BEN Strevens says he's got a point to prove against Brentford tomorrow – but insists he won't celebrate if he scores against his former club.
The 31-year-old scored seven goals in 29 games during his season-long stint with the Bees before being sold to Wycombe Wanderers in 2010.
Strevs faces his old team-mates for the first time since leaving TW8 when Uwe Rosler's men visit Adams Park tomorrow.
And the ex Barnet and Dagenham frontman is hell-bent on proving he can cut it at this level.
He said: “There's always an added incentive when you play against one of your former clubs.
“It was a disappointing time at Brentford as I was injured during pre-season and never really got a chance to prove I can play in League One.
“It was a difficult decision to drop back down with Wycombe but we had a great season last year.
“I want to show I can play at this level.”
Strevs is likely to be restored to the starting line-up after being rested for the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Bristol Rovers.
But he insists he won't celebrate if he finds the net against his former employers tomorrow.
“I scored against Barnet for Dagenham and didn't celebrate,” he added, “and I certainly won't celebrate if I score against Brentford.
“I don't think it's appropriate. The fans were always good to me and it's not down to them that things never worked out.”
