Corey Whitely has thanked the Ebbsfleet fans for welcoming him to the club.
Whitely joined Fleet from Dagenham & Redbridge for an undisclosed fee in February, signing a two-and-a-half year contract at the Kuflink Stadium.
The 26-year-old forward scored his second Ebbsfleet goal in four appearances to earn them a 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient on Saturday.
Whitely said: "The fans have been good to me, especially on social media. They’ve welcomed me with open arms and I hope I can give them something back.
"The boys have been good to me too. I’m happy I scored on my debut (at Halifax) and that’s kicked me on for the boys to believe in me and get around me.
"It’s always good to start on the front foot."
Whitely scored with 15 minutes on the clock at Brisbane Road, running onto a flick and finishing clinically under Orient keeper Dean Brill.
"We’ve been working on our shape," he said. "They play very narrow so there was a lot of space out wide. The full-backs came inside with me and Keds flicked it on.
"I knew there was space so I spun and the ball dropped kindly and I smashed it in.
"I love playing with Keds. He’s a quality player, a good target man who can hold it up and I can link off him.
"I do class myself as a central player but I don’t mind doing a job out wide. I’ve played there so many times - as long as I get on the ball and make stuff happen."
A draw was probably fair on Saturday with neither side creating many clear-cut chances.
Whitely said: "We came to attack, to bring the game to them. We did want to get three points but we’re not complaining about a draw. It’s a good result at this ground."
