RONNIE Henry praised the fans for the part they played in Tuesday evening's 1-0 win over Oxford United.

A large crowd of 5,744 was there to witness the game and Boro received great vocal support from their fans much to the delight of Henry and his team mates.

"It was good, it was a big game for us like every game at the moment," Henry told The Comet.

"I thought the atmosphere was very good tonight, they were all up for it and singing. The fans were very good tonight and I'd ask them to be like that on Saturday."

Henry was in superb form on the night with his partnership with Andy Drury on the right flank enjoying great success especially early on and Henry says he enjoys playing with the former Lewes midfielder.

"I got onto the gaffer in the week about playing Andy in front of me because I do enjoy playing with him because we do work well together," he said.

"As you saw in the first half we combined well and got a lot of crosses in."

The win was Boro's sixth 1-0 win of the campaign and another clean sheet which Henry puts down to a team effort.

"It's very good, we're quite solid at the back, we're doing well. It's not just the back four that defends it's the whole team so credit to all of us for keeping those clean sheets.

"They (Oxford) didn't have too many chances, we limited them. That's why we're keeping clean sheets, we're working hard for each other and it's paying off."

Henry says the team will put Tuesday's win behind them straight away and concentrate on their next big game, this Saturday's visit of Luton Town.

"I'm looking forward to that," Henry added. "It'll be good to play in front of a big crowd again and we're looking on to the Luton game now, we'll leave this one behind, and look to get three points on Saturday.
