Darren Carter was a key part of the West Bromwich Albion team that hit top gear last October just before the arrival of manager Tony Mowbray.
That inspired run under caretaker manager Nigel Pearson culminated in a stunning 5-1 win over Ipswich Town at Portman Road.
It would be entirely understandable if Jim Magilton's Tractor Boys turned up for tomorrow's return at The Hawthorns quaking in their boots, especially given the recent scoring record of an Albion side that has bagged a resounding 23 goals in the last eight home league games.
But Carter believes the sort of form Kevin Phillips, Nathan Ellington, Diomansy Kamara and Jason Koumas are in would be enough to unsettle any opposition.
"Teams are coming here and fearing us," he said. "They know we've got a good home record.
"Ipswich will come here with the aim of being gritty and getting in our faces but the way we're playing at home at the moment is fantastic.
"We've got people who are scoring goals.
"Jason, Joe, Nathan and Kevin are all on fire.
"Everything they seem to touch is hitting the net.
"What happened at Port-man Road is going to be in their minds and they'll be using that to psyche themselves up.
"But we've just got to concentrate on our game, keep doing what we've been doing, and we should be okay. And, as long as we keep supplying chances, and we defend well, then at home there won't be a problem.
After hitting 13 goals in four successive wins at The Hawthorns, Albion's main concern is to get it right in away matches too. But, for now, they are simply relieved that the Boxing Day win over second-placed Preston North End has pushed them back into the play-off pack for the first time in a month and within four points of the automatic places.
"We were out of the top six for a few weeks," Carter said. "And that's not where we want to be. But we've dug in and got some results.
"And, if we can get another three against Ipswich, we'll go to Southend on New Year's Day hoping to change our luck away from home.
"We deserve to be up there, we've got the squad to do it and we've got to pull together now and go on a consistent run."
And the confident Carter still has his old team Birmingham City in his sights.
"It's a tight league and, apart from Blues, everyone is in a bunch," he said.
"But it's up to us now to go on a run like Blues have done, push ourselves into the top two and try to chase them down."
