The blossoming Spurs defender suffered a painful introduction to first-team football during the 4-1 thrashing in September 2010.
He said: "I buzz off the atmosphere of this game.
"I'm so looking forward to it. It was the first game I looked for this season.
"I made my debut in the North London derby. We lost 4-1 in extra-time in the Carling Cup and I want to correct that.
"Saturday is probably our biggest game of the season.
"I'd love to score in a North London derby but, more importantly, I want three points."
