Boss Delighted By Win

2 March 2016

Kevin pleased for fans and players alike on positive night.

He said: "Elliott kept us in the game early on, but after that, we were full of good attacking football and our defending was magnificent.

And Kevin was full of praise for his team.

The U's ended an extended winless streak to register three points and a double against the Bantams.

Colchester United boss Kevin Keen was understandably delighted to see his side pick up their first league win under his tenure, as the U's picked up a fantastic win at play-off chasing Bradford City.

"I've been saying performances have been good, but tonight the result has gone with the performance.

"We went out there trying to do the best we could and I've got nothing but praise for the players tonight."

Amidst a host of positive performances in Yorkshire, the U's match winner was Darren Ambrose and Kevin was pleased to see him notch two crucial goals.

He said: "Darren has got so much quality, it's just transferring that to the pitch and getting him games on a regular basis.

"He fulfilled the faith I put in him, with two good finishes. He wanted me to leave him on for his hattrick, but I said 'No, old man off you come!"

The win provided some much needed relief after a tough spell for the team and players alike, but Kevin is now only looking ahead to Port Vale and another away trip this weekend.

"We will just take the next game individually and try and win that," he said.

"We can't look any further ahead than that. We've been bottom for a little while now, so we have to make sure we just look and try and win the next game, come what may.

"That win should have come at Bury, but I am so pleased. They've worked so hard and given 100% over the last few weeks and they've shown no signs of jacking it in, so I'm delighted for them and really pleased for the fans."

"But I'm so pleased for the players and the supporters that travel week in, week out.
