Video & Quotes from the Stevenage striker after the win over his former team...

  • On a fantastic victory...

“It was a great team performance, I thought we battled well. I thought we started very well actually, we were just unlucky they countered and managed to have a similar opportunity like we did early on, and scored.

"After that, we were back on top. We controlled the game well, it was a fantastic home performance and we gave the fans exactly what they wanted to see.

“I have been chomping at the bit to get a start down the middle. That is my preferred position, that is where I want to be playing. They gaffer rewarded me with that, and I would like to think I have repaid him.”

  • On being the pantomine villain...

“It was always going to happen, but it is important to play the game and not the occasion. We did that as a team. The place did not stop, there was noise throughout. It was a great atmosphere and a great result.

“They should know by now. That fuels me, I love it. You can give me it all, and I will put it out on the pitch. I let the football do the talking and they soon stopped talking.

“It was lovely. It (the goal) soon silenced them, which was nice, and the boys dug in. We came out in the second half flying out of the traps."

  • On picking up an injury...

“It is bittersweet a little bit. I hurt my shoulder, we will see how it settles down. It feels okay, there are no real big worries but it is obviously sore.

"We will see how it is Monday and we will assess it from there. If I need to get an x-ray or scan then I will get that done. I felt it pop out, but it has gone back in which is nice. It is not enough to dampen my spirits today.”
