Colchester made it four wins in a row, and five-matches unbeaten, with a two-nil win against Bradford on Tuesday.

He might not have got on the scoresheet in this one but George Moncur had against Swindon, which Colchester won on Saturday of course, with him having this to say about that game and his goal.

Back to Tuesday though!

Tony Humes, after the two-nil win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, has spoken about ‘clinical finishing’ seeing Colchester to another win, with them keeping on coming at the moment.

This was secured, after first half goals from Callum Harriott and Marvin Sordell, to keep the Colchester run going.

It’s fair to say the in-form Charlton loanee Harriott, who has impressed since his U’s arrival, was massively helped by a mistake from Bradford ‘keeper Brad Jones!

Humes, speaking to the BBC feels his side are doing what they’ve done all season but the difference now is the clinical nature of the performances and in particular the finishing.

‘We said early on in the season we were playing well without getting the rewards. We’ve just become a little bit more clinical and taken our chances. If you score the first goal in this league it makes an awful lot of difference.

‘We’ve got to keep approaching games in the same way.

‘When you’ve got quality in your team you’ve got to use it, push the opposition back and use the strength in your team, and I think we’ve got a lot of strengths there.’

I bet chairman Robbie Cowling is happy he didn’t have any ‘sack the manager’ pills isn’t he!
