AFC Wimbledon boss Terry Brown hopes Danny Kedwell receives a warm reception on his return to Kingsmeadow on Saturday.
Kedwell, who captained the Dons to promotion from the Conference last season, will face his old club for the first time since his summer move to Gillingham.
"I hope he gets a really warm welcome because he played a massive part in getting us back to the Football League," Brown told the South London Press.
"We would not be playing this game if it wasn't for Danny. His and Jon Main's goals were the reason we had the success we did, so a big thanks to Danny."
