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."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
