U's boss wants back to back wins at JCS

19 October 2021

Colchester United boss, Hayden Mullins, has said he wants to pick up back to back wins when Bristol Rovers visit on Tuesday evening.

Hayden Mullins guided the U's to a first home league win of the season on Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Harrogate Town, with Sylvester Jasper on target for his first Colchester United. 

The goal came late on in the game, although the U's were good value for their three points, pushing second-place Harrogate in the second half, with either side striking the bar towards the end of the game. 

And with the visit of Bristol Rover on Tuesday evening, Hayden Mullins wants his side to build on their performance, and aim for another three points in front of the home crowd. 

"The lads know that we need to try and put performances together at home. It was the best way to start, against a team that are the top scorers in the division, a team that are bang in form, so to beat those was a good marker for us. 

"The boys did really well, all the bits we spoke about before the game were excellent, and to score the goal in the way we did was fantastic. 

"It shows us as a side, and what the lads are doing off the pitch is a great job. To have that energy and pace in the eighty-eighth minute as we did - Brendan has driven the whole length of the pitch, at pace. Then the pass at the end was so good that Sylvester couldn't miss. 

"Getting the first win will give the lads confidcence, now that's off their backs. They will have enjoyed it on Saturday, taking it in, and are looking forward to the game against Bristol Rovers."
