West Ham's Nigel Reo-Coker says he will not celebrate scoring if he grabs a goal against former club Wimbledon on Tuesday.

The Hammers have a number of former Dons in their squad, as the cash-strapped club have been forced to sell off their top stars to ease their plight.

The Division One's bottom club now face Alan Pardew's promotion-chasers on Tuesday night and their old boys pose a real threat.

19-year-old Reo-Coker says that he still has a lot of affection for Wimbledon and would not celebrate scoring against them.

"I wouldn't celebrate if I scored a goal but I have to concentrate on my own career and the other ex-Wimbledon lads feel the same way," said Reo-Coker.

"We grew up at Dons and it was a great club to be at.

"This is a new chapter in our lives - we are West Ham players now and will be looking for three points."

Pardew has also signed former Dons Adam Nowland and Jobi McAnuff in a triple raid during the winter, while striker David Connolly is also a former Wimbledon marksman.
