Plus we have Wordworth on our side, to be honest, if the game was tight at 1-1, Wordworth is the man who can unlock their defence!

Been a long five years...its hurt the last few times but I would give anything for two victories over these mugs this season. Beating the likes of Orient, Dagenham, Gillingham and Brighton is nice but this is the one!!!!

Currently working out how to try and negotiate a family Boxing Day. Perhaps convince them all to come to Colchester with me :-)
