Fabrice Muamba admits he is relishing the prospect of returning to former club Birmingham on Saturday.
The Bolton midfielder enjoyed two years at St Andrews before he switched to the Reebok for £5million last summer.
The 21-year-old has improved his game under Gary Megson and has seen his efforts rewarded by establishing himself in Stuart Pearce's England Under-21 squad.
The former Arsenal youngster admits that he has fond memories of his time with the Blues but he is only concentrating on coming away from the Midlands with three points.
"I enjoyed my time while I was there but this is a different chapter of my life," he told Sky Sports News.
"I am looking forward to the game on Saturday and hopefully we can go there and get three points."
Muamba knows first hand the intense atmosphere that Blues fans generate at St Andrews can put some visiting teams off their game, although he is confident Bolton can come away with a result.
"Definitely, it really helps, it is a really intense place to go but I'm sure if we go about our business in the proper manner we will get three points," he added.
"Obviously they will look to do what Hull did last year. This year is so different to last season.
"So many teams are playing really well and teams are getting harder to break down but I think we are going to go about our business over there and hopefully get the three points."
