Max Porter has ‘spiced’ things up ahead of Barnet’s visit to AFC Wimbledon this weekend.

The former Barnet midfielder comes up against his former side for the first time since leaving them in 2009 when The Bees come to Underhill tomorrow and, as he told The Chronicle, he is looking forward to facing them.

He ‘badly’ wants to beat them though: ‘I enjoyed my time there, and am grateful because they gave me my break in the Football League.

‘There’s always an extra incentive when you play one of your old clubs, and I’m not going to lie I want to beat them badly.

‘Everyone wants to do well against their former team and I’m no different.’

Those thoughts are fine, as Porter himself has said it is what any player wants against a former side.

Although it is his thoughts that Wimbledon are a ‘much bigger club’ and Barnet just ‘stagnate’ that will infuriate some: ‘AFC Wimbledon is a much bigger club. Even when you turn up at 1pm on a matchday there’s still a buzz about the place where as at other clubs I’ve been at there’s no one there.

‘No disrespect to Barnet but they stagnate and are just happy to be in League Two. AFC Wimbledon are a club looking to progress.’

Some interesting words from Porter, he for one will be hoping that he can follow this up with a good performance and help The Wombles to a win!

At the same time his thoughts may well just inspire Barnet that little bit more?
