Birmingham City striker Mikael Forssell insists he holds no grudge against former manager Steve Bruce.
Forssell's future at St Andrews had been in doubt during the latter stages of Bruce's tenure, but he has featured prominently since Alex McLeish took charge last November.
The Finn comes up against Bruce this weekend when Birmingham head to his current club Wigan Athletic, but Forssell is not out to prove a point.
Instead, the former Chelsea forward wants to secure three points for Blues to leapfrog Wigan in the table and lift the club closer to Premier League survival.
"I'm really looking forward to coming up against Steve," said Forssell in the Daily Star. "I think all of the players here are.
"But it's not about proving a point because I hold no grudges against anybody.
"It was him who put me in the side in the beginning, so I owe him something for that, but we are just desperate to try and win the game.
"It doesn't matter who it's against really. I think it will come down to the team that wants it most and we want it badly, believe me.
"We're not safe yet because there's still a long way to go, but we have a real chance now."
