Leeds attacker Sanchez Watt has revealed he will not celebrate should he find the back of the net against Arsenal on Wednesday.
The 19-year-old is currently on loan at Elland Road from the Gunners and is set to line up against his parent club when the two sides meet in their third round FA Cup replay in midweek.
Simon Grayson's Whites produced a heroic display in North London to earn a 1-1 draw at the Emirates, meaning Arsenal now face a potentially tricky trip to West Yorkshire.
Leeds are in good form and the Championship promotion hopefuls thrashed Scunthorpe 4-0 in the league on Saturday, with Watt bagging his first goal for the club in 19 appearances.
Now he is raring to go for the replay but says there will be no celebration should he manage his second goal in as many games.
"I didn't think Arsenal would allow me to play in this tie," he said in The Sun.
"But, when I was told I could turn out, I knew I had to have a good game so I didn't hold back in our 1-1 draw at the Emirates and gave it my all.
"I shall be giving my very best again on Wednesday.
"It will be strange if I score against Arsenal - if I get the goal that knocks them out of the cup, I won't celebrate."
Watt is set to remain at Leeds until the end of the season and is hoping an impressive spell will persuade Arsene Wenger to give him a chance in the Gunners first team.
Midfielder Jack Wilshere benefited greatly from a loan stint at Bolton last term and Watt is targeting a similar kick-start to his career.
"Jack is having a great season and doesn't look out of place in the Arsenal side," he added.
"That has given me a lot of confidence that I can do the same."
