Dundee manager John Brown admits he has a major soft spot for promotion rivals Hamilton Accies.
But Bomber is desperate to get one over on another of his former clubs.
The Dundee boss came up through the ranks at Douglas Park before securing his move to Dens in 1984 as a 21-year-old.
Four years a dark blue, more than 100 games and almost 30 goals later, he left for pastures new at Ibrox.
As with Rangers, every week Bomber admits to keeping an eye out for how the Accies have got on, aside from reasons to do with the Dark Blues’ Championship table-topping hopes.
It’ll be very different this time out, according to Bomber.
The gaffer said: “Hamilton are one of my old teams so I always look to see them doing well.
“Well, that is, up until this coming Saturday.
“For once, I’ll be hoping Hamilton don’t get a result.
“We need to go there and get a positive result.”
Due to events last weekend, Dundee are again six points behind Accies at the summit of the second tier.
Bomber is backing his players to right a few wrongs on Saturday, in what looks certain to be a crunch game for their season.
“We’ve come back and dusted ourselves down after last weekend,” he said.
“We had a bad taste in the mouth because we felt we were definitely good enough to win the three points against Falkirk.
“It was a day when I thought one goal would win it. Unfortunately, as things worked out, that wasn’t enough.
“Truth be told, we should have seen it out.
“The game was there to be won but, in the end, we ended up losing out on two points.
“There was a flatness in the dressing-room post-match because of the manner of the result.
“If it was a 30-yarder for their equaliser you could hold your hands up unfortunately it wasn’t.
“That’s been niggling away at the players. You can see it in training. They can’t wait to put it right.
“Hamilton have been the form side in the Championship now we need to show everyone we can step up to the mark.”
Meanwhile, the Dark Blues reserves, managed by Gavin Rae, ran out 3-2 winners in their game against Raith Rovers.
Scorers in the match at Stark’s Park were Martin Boyle, Carlo Monti and Leighton McIntosh.
