Manager Rob Page was a happy man at full time on Saturday and was quick to show his appreciation to the travelling support for the noise they made during the win.
Mark Marshall and Colin Daniel scored the second half goals that gave us all three points on the day, and Page told the Official Site that he felt it was a hard earned three points, but a win that was thoroughly deserved.
Having gone over to show his appreciation to the fans at full time, Page explained.
‘They’ve travelled down so as players we’ve got to show our appreciation to them as well. That’s what it’s all about, the club is nothing without loyal supporters like them.’
As for the game itself, Page’s first win as proper manager, and our first away win since August, he admits that the game plan we came into the game with wasn’t working in the first 25 minutes, so he made the decision to change it and he knows it helped us get a better foothold in the game.
‘From a performance point of view, we had a plan that didn’t work, so I decided to change it. Colchester are a good team, they’ve proved that before and they had large possession, but once we change it and put Marshall in the hole, he caused them a few problems. That helped us but we’ve been threatening to produce an away performance like that for a couple of weeks and it was pleasing it came together for us.’
Having scored our opener at the weekend, Mark Marshall was also a happy man and he was quoted as saying about his goal.
‘I’ve been taking enough shots over the last few weeks or months I should say, so it felt really good.’
