The frontman was at Leatherhead with Spurs coach Inglethorpe and still supports the north London club.
But he goes into today’s match hoping to inflict another defeat on Andre Villas-Boas’ side.
“I grew up supporting Tottenham so it is a good chance to play them again,” Mackie told the Sunday Mirror.
“I owe Alex a great deal as I started out under him at Leatherhead and he has gone on to become a fantastic coach, one of the best I have worked with.
“But it would be nice to win and get the first three points on the board against a top Spurs side.”
