Cedric Scott is looking forward to a return to Calgary.

After all, it's where the Edmonton Eskimos defensive back made arguably his biggest play of the season.

On Labour Day, Scott brought down Stampeder quarterback Henry Burris on a potential tying two-point conversion attempt.

Tomorrow, Scott will be back in the Eskimos lineup when they travel to Calgary to face the Stampeders in the regular-season finale.

"Calgary is a team that is a big rival of the Eskimos and this being my first year I've gone and found that out,'' Scott said. "It's going to be a hard-nosed physical game and we're up for the challenge. Hopefully, I can go out there and make some more big plays that cause us to win the game.''

Scott sat out of last week's encounter against the B.C. Lions in favour of Charles Alston, who draws the short straw this week.

"I'm feeling good,'' Scott said. "I had been grinding pretty much the whole season and the pre-season it was just small nagging injuries that caught up with me. ''

Having faced Burris and the Stamps twice this season, Scott and the Eskimos defensive line know what they're up against.

"Henry Burris is the toughest thing about them,'' said Scott. "You have to keep him in the pocket, because he can hurt you throwing the ball and he can hurt you scrambling. We just have to try to keep him in the pocket, get hit on him and get him on the ground. We have to try and get some good hits on him and kind of rattle him.''

Having defeated the Stampeders at home once already this season, Scott is not concerned about playing in a hostile environment. In fact he's relishing the opportunity to go back to Calgary.

"You feed off that,'' Scott said. "I feel like we play well on the road and we feed off the negative energy we get from the crowd in the game.''
