Barry Robson opened the scoring with a fourth-minute penalty after being fouled by Colchester defender Josh Thompson.

Kevin McDonald added a second with a low, long-range effort in the 73rd minute and Dave Kitson completed the scoring in stoppage time after Diego De Girolamo's shot had been parried by Colchester goalkeeper Sam Walker.

Wilson said: "You get a bit frustrated when you don't win at home and people get a bit anxious, but I think the two away games we've just had in particular, have been a great lift for us.

"It brought us into a home game which everybody was looking at to see if we could get three points.

"To put three good performances in during a short space of time is a measure of the players.

"They've handled the expectation level very well and now we're putting a bit of pressure on other teams.

"It was a great run from Barry Robson and he attracted a tackle to win the penalty. He's just trying to get to the pace of English football again and his all-round play was good.

"He's a quality player and his experience is invaluable because he'll calm everyone down.

"It's important that we try and challenge for the top two places. We've got to maintain the performances we're putting in at the moment."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
