Lee Boylan revealed his delight in ending his goalscoring drought against Woking on Tuesday night.
The match was petering out into a goalless draw until the 30-year-old's flash of brilliance sealed all three points for his side and ended a run without a goal since early January.
"I've been without a goal for a few games but I've been working hard for the team and I always thought the goals would come," Boylan told The Comet.
"It's great to get on the scoresheet again but obviously the most important thing was getting the win for the lads."
Woking's stubborn approach starved both Steve Morison and Boylan of decent service but just before the hour-mark Andy Drury spotted the former West Ham trainee's run and he did the rest.
"Andy has been playing really well and I made the run and he played a really good pass and I was fortunate enough to finish it

"We really had to grind it out though. You can get games when we pass teams off the pitch but don't score but then you get teams where you have to battle on and you just nick it 1-0.
"A win's a win and we're just keeping our momentum going and hopefully we can carry that on."
Boylan said the current mood in the Boro dressing room is buoyant to say the least with the club in the midst of a nine-match winning streak.
"The confidence is really high in the camp. Everyone is working hard for each other and we haven't got anyone who doesn't want to do their bit for the team.
"I think Burton are a bit too far ahead to catch so we've got to look at that second place and then go up in the play-offs.
"We just want to keep this winning momentum going and carry on from there.
