Stephen Carr reflected the mood of the camp after Helder Postiga opened his account against Manchester City.
"He needed that goal and it's good for him to get off the mark," said our current skipper. "He can take it on now.
"It's a weight off his shoulders because if it carried on, more pressure would be put on him.
"He's been working hard and it comes to you in the end if you do that.
"He's also worked hard with Robbie up front and it's good for him. He needed to score and let's hope he can keep it going now."
