Speaking to the Official Site in his own post game interview with the 21 year old already having come in for great praise from manager Chris Hughton, he said himself that he was pleased with the day and the icing on the cake was to go two points clear at the top of the Championship table with the win.

‘It was a great game. We dominated the first half and I don`t know how they got back into it, but they did and we always make it hard for ourselves. We were holding on a bit in the end, but three points are in the bag and we`re top of the league again, which is great.’

As for his goal, he went on to say.

‘For the goal, the ball took all sorts of rebounds and then it bounced up to me, and I put my foot through it. Tomasz Kuszczak got a good hand to it, and it took a bit of power to beat him. It seemed like I did have the beating of the full-back all the time. You want the ball all the time when you`re getting past the defender, and your team-mates try and get the ball to you quickly. Liam Rosenior and Jamie Murphy seemed to have the beating of the other full-back too and we need to do that every game.’

With March putting in extra work on the training pitch so he can carry out what Hughton wants from him, he feel that hard work is now starting to bear fruit for him in matches.

‘The more games I play, the more I`ll improve and become more confident. I`ve just got to keep playing games at the best of my ability. I`ve been doing a lot after training and been working with the gaffer as well. It takes practice and you develop a rhythm and routine of putting the ball into good areas. I just need to get a bit of consistency in my game; I got a few assists from free-kicks last year, but sometimes I over or under hit the ball. I`ve worked on getting a higher percentage of balls into the box and it`s paying off.’

With March taking the man of the match award from the game as well, he was pleased with that but commented confidence in the entire camp couldn’t really be higher given how we are performing at the moment.

‘It`s great and hopefully there are many more awards to come. It was great to get back into the dressing room and everyone was buzzing. It`s good to be back on top of the table. We`ve got a couple of days’ rest and then we`ll go again at the start of next week and hopefully have another win against Charlton.’
