Dundee United did David Templeton a favour by letting him train with them earlier in the season.
But they can’t expect one in return from the Hamilton Accies winger in this week’s play-off final.
The former Rangers and Hearts man started his first game in the best part of two years on Saturday and was one of the stars of the show for his new team as they avoided automatic relegation by thrashing Dundee.
And now Templeton is ready to line up against players he was training with a couple of months ago.
“I was just in to build my fitness up,” he said. “They were good to me and let me train.
“It’s helped get myself fitter and get a deal here.
“I don’t know that much about them and I don’t know what their manager will be saying to them in the build-up.
“We just have to focus on ourselves.”
Templeton picked out Tony Andreu and Simon Murray as two dangermen for United in the play-off double-header.
He said: “Tony is a really good player so it will be important to keep him quiet.
“Simon is a pest and a really good finisher. Keep both of the quiet and we’ve got a good chance.
“It’s good to be back playing football again.
“I’m glad I’ve played quite well and the team got the win against Dundee. That was the most important thing.
“Hopefully I’ve done enough to impress the gaffer and start on Thursday.
“I’ve signed for next season and hopefully it will be in the Premiership.”
