Gills winger Myles Weston won’t be letting the Notts County boo-boys affect him.
Weston spent two years at County between 2007 and 2009 before making the switch to Brentford.
That move didn’t go down well with the County fans, or the former chairman John Armstrong-Holmes, who claimed the move was “foolish”, having offered the winger a three-year deal.
But the chance to play at a higher level wasn’t something Weston was about to turn down.
He said: “I don’t think they liked it when I left but the main reason was because Brentford were in League 1 and I felt like I wanted to step up to the challenge of playing there.
“It wasn’t about the money or even that it was in London. The reason was because Brentford were in League 1 and Notts County were in League 2.
“I don’t think a lot of people liked the fact I left but it was just to further my career. I have to do what’s best for me, I can’t do what’s best for everyone else.
“They don’t like me much but I don’t really get phased by fans and all that, I just concentrate on my game.
“Hopefully we can get three points (tomorrow) and get back to winning ways and playing good. At the moment we are inconsistent but we are working hard to change that.”
