oil leak under exhaust manifold

Hi everyone, great site, great community. I have just finished replacing a burn out exhaust valve and replaced the head casket. After completing everything I cab see I have an oil leak coming from somewhere under the exhaust manifold. It doesn't appear to be from the head but something a little lower. It is quite a tight job getting the supercharger off and on so any help in identifying the source of the leak could be great for me. Thanks.
