“I like my home debuts as I’ve scored on a few down the years so it’s nice to keep that run going today.

“I scored on my Old Trafford debut, my Brighton debut and my Sheffield United debut.

“I’ve been here a few weeks now and I’ve just been getting back into training. It’s been a good two- or three-days training so I got the nod today and did the best for the team that I could, lasted 60 minutes. it was a good building block for me.

“It was pleasing to get the goal, but the win was the main thing. The defenders and also the midfielders did very well to keep their discipline and concentration. We were put under quite a bit of pressure at the end of the first half and at the beginning of the second.

“I’m very happy for the team to get the win.

“It was a very tough game, we knew it would be. We knew that we would have to match them physically.

“It’s been a while since I’ve scored competitively in the senior leagues so it’s never a feeling you forget and it’s nice to have it again.

“Any time the ball hits the back of the net it’s an incredible feeling so it’s really nice to get in the mix again.

“It was a great ball from Niall, I have got the touch then got the finish away.

“We linked up really well up front with the service out wide and with Sam. We can rely on Sam to hold the ball in.

“Stevie’s going to play his part as well so it’s a good position to be in at the minute with the competition for places with everyone fit.

“The pressure (on me) is nothing new. I try to deal with it as best I can and if I can keep scoring goals the pressure will lift as I go on.

“I watched the St Mirren game where we won quite comfortably, but since then we’ve got a few draws so I’m coming in to do my best for the team and get goals.

“I’ve had a little taste of Easter Road as I got 30 minutes a few weeks ago. It’s going to be a very different game trying to get into the Semi-Final. We’ll be ready for it and have recovery tomorrow and we’ll go again on Tuesday.

“The results haven’t been the best up until now but we’re back to winning ways and hopefully we can carry that forward.

“The fans were great today and I really appreciate the reception I got when I came off. It was good to repay them with the win.”
