Kop legend Fowler returns to his ex-club with Cardiff for their Carling Cup fourth round clash.
The Reds boss said: "Maybe we can leave him to score a fantastic goal in front of the Kop but at the end of the game we will need to have scored three!
"I would like to see him very happy before the game but when it is over I hope he is a little bit disappointed.
"After this match, I hope to see him scoring 20 goals and being the top scorer in the Championship.
"I was really pleased with Robbie and you could see that some of the players were learning from his movement and his finishing, which was fantastic."
