“When you look back over a season there are lots of defining moments and key goals,” he said. “But, I suppose, from a team point of view, and particularly from a personal point of view, the fact the save was right in the last minute was decisive. It gave me a huge confidence boost as well and that was important. Now we are in front and we have to try and stay there because it would be a dream come true to win the league in my first season. It is nice to know supporters are voting me. It is always a positive when the fans are behind you. It is something I can sense when I am on the field and makes me feel more relaxed. It is a source of extra motivation when you know the fans are right behind you and rooting for you. But all that aside, it is just a case of getting your head down, keep working hard and making sure you do have a continuous improvement all the time.”
