Danny Wright says there will be no room for sentiment when Wrexham face his former club Cambridge in the FA Cup.
Wright, who joined Wrexham in August, returns to Cambridge for Friday's first-round tie.
"I got quite excited about going back to Cambridge. I spoke to a few of the lads when the draw was made," he said.
"But I've got to keep my head on the job at hand for Wrexham. Obviously we want to progress to the next round so I've got to be professional about it."
Andy Morrell's side are currently joint leaders of the Blue Square Bet Premier while Cambridge are third.
The previous meeting between the two sides this season ended in a 1-1 draw at the Racecourse on the opening day of the league campaign.
"It's a great tie for the Conference," said Wright, who has also played for Histon.
"With Cambridge being at home I suppose they've got a little bit of advantage. There's not so much pressure on us.
"Hopefully we'll do the job at hand and get through to the next round.
"I don't think you can look any further than that especially with Cambridge in good form in the league.
"We've got to concentrate on Friday and do everything the gaffer's asked of us.
"Everyone knows what they've got to do for the team to win the game.
"There's a great buzz about the place. I think winning games and being top of the league breeds that."
