Barnsley striker Marlon Harewood says he will not celebrate if he scores his first goal of the season against former club Nottingham Forest on Saturday.


The 33-year-old Londoner joined Forest at the age of 13 in the early 1990s and stayed until 2003. He scored 55 goals in 204 appearances and formed a formidable partnership with David Johnson that generated 50 goals in his final season at the City Ground. Harewood then played four more times Forest towards the end of last season before joining Barnsley.


"Forest will always be in my heart," said Harewood.


"It was a pleasure to play for them and it will be a pleasure to play against them. Obviously I hope Barnsley can beat them. It does give the game a little bit extra but I won’t celebrate if I score. Forest looked after me really and I always respect my former clubs."
