Colchester United boss, Tony Humes, described the second-half strikes by Rhys Healey and Freddie Sears as “fantastic goals,” following tonight’s comeback 2-1 win over Chesterfield at a chilly Weston Homes Community Stadium.
Substitute Healey raced through to notch a 50th minute equaliser, before Sears turned to lash home a spectacular winner from just outside the box on 86 minutes.
These goals cancelled out Sam Clucas’ opening goal, scored after just 61 seconds.
“I’m delighted to win the game after such a good comeback,” enthused Humes.
“They were two fantastic goals from us to win the game.

“Rhys gave us something extra up front and left Freddie (Sears) with more space. We gave their centre-halves far more problems,” added Humes.
The U’s boss also confirmed that Frankie Kent, who had been stretchered off with a head injury early on – the centre-half suffered the injury in the build-up to Chesterfield’s opening goal, by taking a ball in the face from close-range - was feeling “fine” after the match
