Having sealed the victory with his first goal in front of his home fans, Tokelo Rantie was quoted on the Clubs Official Web Site after the match as saying: "Maybe if someone had explained to me that if I went to the fans it would be a yellow card, I wouldn’t have done it. But I didn’t actually know. I was disappointed though because I went to celebrate with the fans and it was a great feeling for me. Even though I got booked, I’m still happy that I did it with them. It was an emotional game for me. I think I deserved a hug from them and they deserved a hug from me. I’m very grateful that I managed to contribute the goal. It was something that I actually needed and hopefully there will be more goals coming. I think it will be positive for me going forward in terms of the confidence I will have in front of the fans because they have been waiting for it for quite some time. It was my first goal at home and I’m very pleased with it. It came at the right time because we have three points. I think the manager is doing the right thing by using me as a second half substitute because it is the only way I will adapt quickly. I think he has been doing a fantastic job. Lewis Grabban has been motivating me as well and the rest of the guys have been doing well, so there’s no need for the manager to change the team right now".
