Oxford United defender Andy Whing admits there has been a "great turnaround" in his relationship with the club's fans.
He won Oxford's player of the month for November and was man of the match in Saturday's win over Northampton after a tricky start to his U's career.
"It's been a great turnaround. I got a bit of abuse to start off," the 27-year-old told BBC Radio Oxford.
"I've got a bit more consistent and long may that continue."
The U's recorded their first win since 29 October with their 2-0 success over the Cobblers.
The former Coventry City and Brighton player says the club have benefited from their recent two-week break, having exited the FA Cup in the first round.
"We kept a clean sheet up at Morecambe which was a good result and I think we regrouped during the fortnight break," he continued.
"We needed a bit of time off and we've been fantastic since then, both in training and in games."
