PARS midfielder enforcer Andy Geggan is relishing takling on the boo boys when he returns to his old stomping ground today (Saturday).
The ex-Dumbarton player is hoping put one over on on his old team-mates when he returns to The Rock where he spent five years of his career.
Geggan said, "We know it's going to be a tough game. I don't know what reception I'm going to get; whether I'm going to get booed or not.
"I'm looking forward to it. I was with Dumbarton for five years so it will be a different experience to play against them. Hopefully I can maybe score a goal too."
The 25-year-old is finding his feet at East End Park after turning in stand-out performances against Airdrie and Raith Rovers when switched from right back to centre midfield by gaffer Jim Jefferies.
He continued, "I'm happier in centre midfield but I didn't mind right back as I used to play there years ago.
"When the manager put Jordan (McMillan) in the middle and me at right back I wondered what was happening as he's a right back and I'm a midfielder but I don't mind where I play.
"I do enjoy it in the middle as I can get amongst it more, get involved in challenges and I'm more comfortable there.
"I like getting stuck in, winning my battles and making sure I'm on top."
Geggan was blown away by the derby day atmosphere against Raith and believes the team are beginning to gel into a formidable unit.
"I didn't think the atmosphere was going to be as intense as it was.
"From the first tackle with wee Josh it was obvious it was going to be a right good game.
"Perhaps expectations have risen after the Raith game. When we played Partick Thistle you could see they'd been together for a couple of years but I think you can see us starting to gel together.
"It was a good confidence booster and we've got to keep that form going and take it into this game on Saturday."
