Potter eyes happy return

13 December 2013

Darren Potter will return to the Molinuex tomorrow for the first time since leaving Wolverhampton Wanderers four-and-a-half years ago.

The 28-year-old joins his fellow MK Dons midfielder Stephen Gleeson in returning to their former hunting ground as the men from MK1 look to cause an upset by leaving second-placed Wolves with points in the bag comes 5pm on Saturday.

Potter spent three seasons with Wolves, initially joining on loan before the Wanderers parted with £250,000 to acquire his services on a permanent bases from Liverpool.

Speaking to MK Dons Player Potter said: “I’ve got mixed feelings really because when I first went there I was only young, I was only 21 and I had a really enjoyable first season there and then after that things moved a bit slow for me, I wasn’t obviously playing as much as I would have liked and I eventually moved because I wasn’t playing at all. I’ve still got some great memories from my time there.”

When the Liverpudlian left Wolves they were about to embark in a season in the top flight, however, the club has fallen on hard times over the last two season which has seen them drop from the Premier League to League 1.

After years of woes the Wolves fans finally have something to cheer about with their side sat in second place and looking for an immediate return to the Championship. 
On Saturday though Potter will only have aims of a much-needed League victory for the Dons.

He added: “I’m looking forward to it, I think I’m right in saying I’ve never been back to Molinuex since I left. 

“Wolves have not long dropped out of the Premier League and unfortunately they’ve found themselves down in League 1 now but for the likes of us – we’ve got a great stadium ourselves so we know what it’s like to play in front of big crowds and big stadiums.

“To be totally honest, we’re on a terrible run at the moment. Make no bones about it, it’s going to be tough going into the game on Saturday against Wolves that are on great form. If we can go there and come away with anything then it will be a positive result.

“One thing you do know is your luck is going to change sooner or later. Hopefully for us, that can happen at Molinuex.”
