Jo Kuffour hopes his goal against Leicester City on Tuesday can kick-start a good season in the light and dark blue quarters.
“The reaction was nice. They’ve stuck by me throughout last season and I’ve got to just keep repaying them when I can.”
The former Bristol Rovers and Gillingham man saved a special mention for the supporters.
He added: “With the squad we’ve got, we can go places. The way Gaz sets the team up is breeding confidence.”
“We need the same again, up and at ‘em, give them no time.”
He said: “Gaz was very happy and said we need to carry that form into the league. Leicester’s gone now; we’ve got AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
Kuffour insists the Blues won’t be admiring their display against their Championship counterparts, instead using it as a springboard going into this weekend’s clash at AFC Wimbledon.
“Last season was the worst season I’ve ever had. I’ve never scored less than 10 goals in a season. Last season I didn’t myself any justice so I just hope I can more minutes on the pitch. Whenever you get your chance, you’ve got to grab it with both hands.”
He added: “It’s always nice to score. When a striker scores, it’s a totally different mentality.
“It’s up there as one of my best - top five definitely. Hopefully I can get a few more.”
“It was nice to be back. I’m feeling the benefits of a full pre-season. On a personal level, it was great to be back in the team and obviously to get off the mark.
“I just took it instinctively which is what I’m all about,” the 31-year-old told Chairboys Player.
Kuffour levelled matters in some style on 20 minutes, receiving the ball on the edge of the area, turning his man and expertly finding the top right-hand corner.
