Ton up for Chris

15 April 2013

Chris Porter had more reason than most to celebrate Saturday's opener against Swindon Town that paved the way for a crucial three points in Chris Morgan's first game in charge.

Having dominated the opening exchanges, Porter rose highest to head home Tony McMahon's free-kick just before the interval, a goal that saw the striker reach a personal landmark.

Porter admits he has been revitalised since his loan spell away from Bramall Lane, commenting:

"It was an important and much needed win. The performance perhaps deserved more, especially in the first-half.

"I was delighted with my goal, which was my 100th senior goal, although I should have had a couple more.

"After returning from my loan at Shrewsbury Town I have been champing at the bit to play and when I have played recently I have done well.

"Thankfully Morgs gave me the chance to start and I would like to think I have repaid his faith, now I really want to kick on."

Speaking of Morgan and his assistant David Unsworth, Porter added:

"Everyone respects Morgs because of what he achieved as a player and he is a great bloke too.

"Both Morgs and Unsy filled the lads with confidence before the game and we didn't let them down.

"The emphasis in training since the Gaffer left has been to play at a high tempo and we worked so hard to dominant from the first minute."
