Bonne opens the scoring but it’s former loanee Murphy who’s all smiles at the final whistle
Colchester United’s goalscorer Macauley Bonne, admitted that Coventry’s former U’s loanee Jacob Murphy had a big smile on his face in the tunnel at full-time.
Hotshot Murphy, who spent three months in Colchester colours last season, scored twice against his former employers as the Sky Blues came out on top.
“You have your bit of banter before, during, and after the game being old team-mates, and he had a big smile on his face afterwards,” said Bonne, who was also on target on Saturday with a fine 17th-minute opener after meeting Callum Harriott’s excellent cross.
“At the end of the day, he’s a good player and he’s going to go on and score goals.”
Bonne also had a smile on his face during the first half as he converted a Harriott cross to give Colchester the lead, a lead which the winger-cum-striker thought the U’s would hold.

“I’m really happy to score another goal. All I want is goals, goals, goals (after scoring four against Wealdstone last week),” said Bonne.
“Almost every goal I’ve scored this season has come from one of Callum’s crosses and everyday in training, I tell him that if he puts the ball in the box I’ll be there.

“I thought we were going to win the game at that point, it was our game for the taking, but it turned out to be one of those really frustrating days.
“I think it was a game we should have ran away and won against one of the better sides we will play against this season in League One.”
