Swansea striker Danny Graham insists there will be no room for sentimentality when he travels to face boyhood idols Newcastle on Saturday.
The 26-year-old is in good form for the promoted Swans, having scored his fifth goal in 12 games against Fulham last weekend.
The Gateshead-born frontman supported the Magpies as a boy but insists his old allegiance will mean nothing when the Welsh side visit St James' Park.
He told The Sun: "This is when old ties go out of the window.
"Newcastle are not my old club. They're a team I supported as a lad.
"I'm a Swansea player now - and nothing would give me greater pleasure than going up there and winning.
He added: "I was a die-hard Toon fan, going to every match with my family and friends.
"There will be 40 or 50 of them in the Newcastle end today, and I've managed to get a few more in the Swansea end.
"They go every week and I'm sure they will be hoping to see me lose. The feeling is mutual."
