Not considering a move

He might be, having admitted as much to The Gazette, 'disappointed' and 'surprised' at having been dropped recently but Steven Gillespie isn't looking to move on.

The striker was disappointed to have dipped out having been on good goalscoring form in the prior games, although he was happy that Colchester got a result against Leyton Orient: 'fortunately we got a good result at Leyton Orient, but on a personal level I was very disappointed not to be playing in that game.

'I had scored two in two (against Scunthorpe and Chesterfield), had played in the last four games - I felt good.

'In the side is where I want to be - playing the full 90 minutes - which is why I was so disappointed to be sat on the sidelines.

'Of course we do have a strong squad - and the lads did their job on the day - but I was very surprised, to say the least, that I was not starting.

'You have to keep your head down and keep going. The gaffer picked the side for one game and we won, but I`m more than ready if he needs me in other games.'

Having signed a new two-year contract last summer the 26-year-old has no intention of leaving The U's as he sees his future with the club: 'I don't think I will consider moving on, I'm not anywhere near that, especially as I had played in the previous four games.

'I'm happy here at Colchester and I wouldn't consider moving away.

'I want to be here, I want to be scoring goals here. Here is where my future lies.'

He does of course know that his future isn't ever secure though.
