Northern Ireland have not won at home in their last five matches, but the midfielder believes that the fans can play in a big role in changing that record.
"The nights when we have had good results at Windsor the fans have been our 12th man, as they say," he told reporters. "The last few home games maybe haven't been like that, maybe because we haven't provided the results.
"It's just about trying to win the game. You don't have to play well every time to win the game, but keeping the fans on board is a big part of it as well."
Northern Ireland currently sit fourth in World Cup 2014 qualification Group F.
