"It's nice to win and get a bit of momentum quipped Boothroyd.
"We've done 50 per cent of the job and we've got to come back here in a couple of weeks and get a win.
The lads dug in and scored a goal - we've got to maintain that now.
I'm very proud - we were resolute and resilient and gave West Ham a few problems.
We rode our luck at times and in the end we came through. It's a nice feeling to win two games in a row."
An upbeat Boothroyd then turned his attention to new signing, Steve Kabba.
The idea of getting Steve in was to keep the other guys on their toes.
I'm in a great position now as I've got a nice little balance in terms of front players.
It's also got Darius Henderson going, I thought he was great again today.
Steve will come on and play his part, I didn't want to start him because he's had limited games."
