Buoyed Boss Says Win Must Now Mean Something

Buoyed Boss Says Win Must Now Mean Something


Aidy Boothroud has undoubtedly echoed the thoughts of most fervent Colchester United followers after victory against Swindon, saying the result will gain context through what happens next.

The U`s face other fellow top-six chases Charlton and Huddersfield as the season reaches a climax and it is now a case of making up for lost form for the Essex side as they lost ground during a recently miserable run of eight games without a win.

"We go into our next game full of confidence and we definitely feel that we`re back," Boothroyd told BBC Radio Essex at full time, having seen the squad put three goals past high-flying Swindon Town. "It`s a huge result for us - a massive result, it really is."

The points looked all-the-better for Colchester`s clean sheet, their thirteenth of the season; United have now drawn level with Huddersfield and only sit outside the play-offs on goal difference.

Boss Boothroyd continued: "Hopefully, we`ll look back on that [result] at the end of the season and say that it was a defining moment. But it will only be a defining moment if we can build on it at Charlton on Tuesday night and then Hartlepool. It was a hard-fought win and a deserved win. We`ll take whatever we can get, after what we`ve had."

With five games to go and a potential fifteen points to play for, including those theoretical 'six-pointer` ties with positional rivals, it seems Colchester chose a good time to potentially turn a corner after their poor-scoring shows of recent weeks.
