Lee Novak hopes City are able to continue building momentum, following a 3-1 victory against Stevenage. 

The striker wrapped the points up for Stuart McCall's men in the dying minutes with his strike against Boro. 

He believed the side battled well and can start to form a winning run, ahead of their trip to Cambridge United on Saturday. 

Novak stated: “The first half was disappointing, but we showed character and belief throughout. 

“When our first goal went in, we knew - straight away - we could grab more. Thankfully, we did, and got all three points.

“All of us spoke at half-time about having character to come back from being one goal down.

“We knew all we needed was one goal and when we scored, we knew the game was there for the taking. I am just glad to have come away with all three points. 

“The team has got to stick together, now. Hopefully, after this victory, we can put a run of wins on the board and push towards everyone above us.

“This could be the start of a good run and all we have to do now is just keep pushing ourselves and getting the wins under our belt.”

City's No.9 became the first player in five years to score in both of his opening two games for the club - in the encounter - after bagging on his debut against Grimsby Town on Saturday. 

Having netted, Novak was quick to thank his team-mates and staff for welcoming him into the club, since signing on deadline day.

He added: “It always helps, getting off to a good start - especially when it was a bit difficult with the change of manager.

“However, Stuart McCall has come in and been brilliant. Everyone has been welcoming for me, which obviously makes it a lot easier. 

“Overall, I think these first couple of weeks have been good. Long may it continue.”
