Brennan Dickenson spearheaded a wonderful team performance from Colchester United, bagging a first-half brace in an emphatic 6-0 home win over Crewe tonight.

Frankie Kent, Ryan Jackson, Luke Norris and Tom Lapslie were also on target, as the U’s recorded their biggest-ever home win at the Community Stadium, since their move from Layer Road in 2008.

“What a night! I scored two goals, had three assists and we won 6-0,” enthused Dickenson.

“What more could you ask after a team performance like that! We all felt very good out there.

“It was a very enjoyable match to play in, and the confidence is sky-high in the camp at the moment.

“I feel like we have a very strong squad this year, and there is certainly more to come from us this season,” added Dickenson.

The U’s are unbeaten after four games, with two wins and two draws, and are up to third in League Two.

Kayden Jackson is hoping his goal in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Brentford is the first of many as he continues to get to grips with the challenge of the Championship.

Paul Hurst doesn’t expect midfielder Teddy Bishop to be out for too long despite picking up a hamstring injury but Jon Walters is now a doubt for Saturday’s game with Bolton.
