Check Diabate has given his verdict on a special day for him, as he scored his first senior Grecian goal in a 2-0 win away at Walsall.
Two almost identical goals from Diabate and team mate Tim Dieng either side of half time won it for City, who have kept three consecutive clean sheets in the league.
"When you're young and you watch it on TV, you just want it to be you. So to experience that it is just an amazing feeling," Cheick said, after running to the fans to celebrate his 85th minute header.
"I'll never forget this moment, it's been a long and tough journey for me. Set pieces for us are a big thing we've been working on and it's one of our strengths.
"We're looking solid and playing well at the back. We have to keep the good performances up and keep consistency."
