But the 27-year-old admits he knew little about his goal at Roots Hall.
"I felt it hit my head but I didn't see it cross the line so it was all quite confusing," he told the club's official website.
"I don't get many goals though and my only other one actually came against Southend, so it was nice to score for the club as well especially on my debut.
"I thought we showed character to come back. The spirit here is great and we need to keep sticking together."
