Kenny Jackett: Pleased with comprehensive win

Leigh Griffiths' brace and a Kevin Doyle strike gave Wanderers all three points, with goalkeeper Carl Ikeme saving Freddie Sears' late penalty.

Wolves head coach Jackett said: "It was probably as good a performance as we've put on this season. I was very pleased, both with the performance of the players and the overall result.

"The period that Colchester came into the game was in the last quarter when I thought that the referee, for whatever reason, was giving them every decision.

"He gave them a big decision for the penalty, which I've seen again and it wasn't a penalty. He gave them every throw and every free-kick and that meant that the flow of the game went for them.

"Carl Ikeme has been in excellent form for us this season and our goals against column is a major contribution to us getting 25 points from 10 games, which is an outstanding start.

"It's a tough division and we're going into the winter period in a good place, but we're a work in progress."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
