He told West Ham's official website: 'Everyone will know my feelings, having been at Charlton for so long. But I'm part of the West Ham management team and we're all focusing on getting the three points.
'Everything's focused on this game. No one could have written a script like this at the start of the season and there's going to be a lot of pressure on. The coolest heads are going to win.
'I came across here for Alan Curbishley, and there are an incredible amount of links. But we'll all shake hands, wish each other the best and then it'll be all guns firing on both sides.
'It's going to be an amazing game. I think there will be a lot of goals out there. I've just got that sort of feeling. Sometimes, when you get tense games, mistakes can be made either side. So it will be one of those real thrillers.'
Saturday is one of the most mouth watering fixtures to be thrown up and I am expecting both clubs to give it a right good go.
Charlton are boosted by the news that Andy Reid is the only senior squad member who will be out with injury as both Darren Bent and Luke Young have been declared fit to start.
