Captain's Blog - Support reaps rewards

It was great to get our first home win of the season under our belts against Portsmouth.

There was certainly lots going on in the game but at the end of the match when we came off the pitch, we had the three points in the bag.

Again the goals came from all over the team. Coley scored his fourth goal in four matches, Nobes got one from the penalty spot, Matty clipped in a free-kick and Henri nabbed a debut goal and a well deserved man of the match award.

It was another team performance from everyone.

That is two wins on the bounce and we want to make it three, by also keeping our great away record going and getting a good result at Millwall on Saturday.

That is what we are focusing on and hopefully come Saturday night, after the match at The Den, that is all we are talking about.

This week, I and some of the lads have been meeting many of you off the pitch.

After the game with Portsmouth, I went up to the Legends Lounge and I received a great response when I got up with Phil Parkes to speak about the game and our start to the season. So thanks to all who were there and I was glad we gave you the result your support deserved.

Then the gaffer, Jack, Coley and myself all went to help launch the new club store at Westfield Stratford City.

Again, it was great to see all who turned up to the store, it was nice to chat to you all and we were more than happy to spend time signing autographs.

One autograph we had to sign was someone's tattoo! I hope it won't be too painful getting that done!

The shop is really nice and I know everyone at the club has been working hard to get it open and ready. Pay a visit if you haven't already and I am sure you will all enjoy it.

Back to the football, we are as ever grateful for your support both home and away and all we can do to repay that is getting the results on the pitch - that is our aim.

Come on you Irons!
