Brackley striker Gary Mulligan is out to prove Gillingham were wrong to bin him.
Mulligan had four seasons at Priestfield but was discarded after a falling out with ex-boss Mark Stimson in 2009.
Then, following a brief spell with Northampton, the Irishman, 28, dropped into non league with Gateshead in 2010 before joining Skrill North side Brackley in 2012.
He said: “I still believe I’ve got what it takes to play in the pro game.
“But it’ll be great to go back, although there’ll be no mixed emotions if I score a 90-minute winner! I’d love it!”
