Byron Harrison's first game back at Stevenage couldn't have gone any better on Saturday as he scored two goals in a 2-0 win over Cambridge, having just joined on loan from Chesterfield.

Part of the 2011/2012 League Two promotion winning side, Harrison was delighted to again hear his name sung by the fans.

“It’s a fantastic day. I was so looking forward to this weekend because I haven’t played in a while and it was even better that it was here, a place that I am familiar with. I had a warm reception from the fans and the chemistry was still there.

“I have got a good chemistry with the fans here, they have always been good to me – even when I have come back with other teams so I really appreciate that, I do.”

Harrison re-signed with Stevenage after a lack of games with his parent club and he says that although he wasn't fully fit, he was glad to still have the goal scoring knack.

“I was just trying to do my job and that is to score goals. I will just take it game by game, regain my fitness and match sharpness and just take it from there.

“It was tough. I think maybe at certain parts it was just the adrenaline getting me through it. I will play a lot better than that and not score. I am just thankful that the old instincts were there to score.

“As soon as you get a sight at goal, that is where the instincts kick-in. (On first goal) I worked hard to edge him out of the way and spin in there, I didn’t want to waste the chance.

“The players put a real shift in to try and better our situation.

“Even more when I left the pitch, the level of our game picked up so I think the lads had the confidence form the Hartlepool win and hopefully we can get on a run and see where we can finish.”
