FREDDIE Sears is one of the in-form attackers in League One, after crashing home his eighth goal of the season, and the fifth in his last eight games, against Yeovil.
Now Colchester United’s main goal-scoring machine is gunning for more goals, starting at Stevenage this afternoon.
“I’m obviously scoring goals at the minute, which is good for the team,” enthused Sears, on the eve of today’s trip to Broadhall Way.
“My aim is to get into double figures (goals scored), which I think would be a good start for me at Colchester. I’m on eight at the moment, and we’ve still got plenty of games to play.
“Unfortunately, a few mistakes cost us against Tranmere (5-1 defeat) last week. If we had kept the game at 1-1, then it might have been a different second half. But it wasn’t to be.
“However, we came out all firing against Yeovil, straight from the first whistle. Everyone was up for it, and we kept that up for the whole game. It was chalk-and-cheese from last weekend.
“Now we want to start just as well at Stevenage,” added Sears.

The ex-West Ham attacker is predicting a glut of surprise results, over the last couple of months of the season, especially near the bottom.
“Everyone is beating everyone. It’s that time of the season where the boys at the bottom have got more to play for than those in mid-table,” explained Sears.
“We’ve got a good run-in, not playing any of the top teams, but we’ve still got to win games.
“I think it might well go to the wire, perhaps to the final day, because other teams are being dragged into it, by teams at the bottom all winning.”
The U’s are currently one place and one point adrift of safety, although Oldham, the team just above them, do have a game in hand and also a better goal difference.
