Joe Dunne: A great win all round

The U's ended a run of six games without a win with a narrow victory over the Sky Blues, to move four points above the relegation zone.

Colchester took a fourth-minute lead when former Coventry loanee Freddie Sears latched on to a pass and confidently slotted past goalkeeper Joe Murphy.

And the U's went further ahead midway through the first half when Gavin Massey finished low past Murphy, from David Wright's long pass.

Dunne said: "I've very pleased for everybody, for ourselves and the fans.

"It was a great win all round for the football club.

"It was a great start and we'd done a lot of work on this kind of play.

"Freddie took his goal exceptionally well and it was a good finish.

"Gavin has been scoring on his left foot a lot in training and he took his goal exceptionally well too.

"It was a great pass into space and a wonderful finish and we had two or three other moments where we could have killed the game off and made it a lot more comfortable than it was.

"We said at half-time that we should put the first 45 minutes to bed and to start again in the second half.

"We knew if we'd draw or win the second half we'd win the game and I thought in the end, we deserved the win."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
