PATRICK Agyemang has pinpointed former team-mate Dexter Blackstock as the danger man when he returns to Loftus Road with Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Blackstock and goalkeeper Lee Camp, who were controversially sold at the behest of QPR co-owner Flavio Briatore, are both expected to feature in the Forest squad this weekend.

Camp has been an ever-present for Forest since he completed a �100,000 move during the summer, while Blackstock has already scored twice for the Midlands club this season.

Agyemang warned: "They'll both be trying to make a name for themselves with the Forest fans and obviously Campy will be trying not to let any goals in, while Dexter will be looking to score.

"Dexter can be a handful, he'll have a point to prove and we'll have to deal with that. He'd been at QPR for a while but he's only just left, so we know how he plays and that'll still be fresh in our minds.

"He scored his fair share of goals for the club, so I should think the fans will give him a good reception. When I scored at Preston at the end of last season I had loads of people coming up to me at the end saying 'well done, thank you for what you did here' and that sort of thing.

"But that was probably because they'd won the game and got into the play-offs - I'm sure it would have been different if I'd cost them their play-off place!"

Preston's top six finish last season was their third in five years - the first two of them were achieved by a side that included Agyemang and were managed by Billy Davies, now boss of the City Ground side.

After leading Preston into the play-offs twice, Davies completed a hat-trick the following year with Derby and was finally successful as the Rams beat West Brom to reach the Premier League.

"We got into the play-off final the first season I was there and lost to West Ham, then we made the play-offs again the next year, so I think that shows what a good manager Billy Davies is," added Agyemang.

"He knows what he wants and always manages to get the best out of the players in his team. Forest have brought in a few new players recently and I'm sure they'll all be looking to impress him.
