The 26-year-old, who rejoined the side from Crystal Palace watched the game from the stands.
The Ghana international watched on as potential striker Partner Cody McDonaldo registered his name on the scoresheet.
“I was rested for a bit of tiredness, I played in the off-season and my team-mates have had time off, so we’re just managing my games loads and stuff like that,” he told Get Surrey
“It was a great result, against a Championship side who did well last season, I thought.
“We showed what we’re about and hopefully we can carry that on into the season, because that was a great performance from a mixture of first team lads and young lads.
“Everybody chipped in and played well.”
