GARRY Richards was in dream-land when heading home his first ever senior goal to secure a richly deserved win over Preston last night.

Despite the loss of Greg Halford, to Premiership side Reading, for a club record £2.5m fee, just a few hours before kick-off, the U's showed no ill effects.

"I wish Greg (Halford) all the best, but we will stick together as a team," insisted goal-hero Richards last night.

"All mayhem then broke out. I ran off to celebrate with my arms in the air, a bit like a windmill.

“Some of the lads have already given me a ribbing about that celebration.

"But this was a very important win for the team, especially because of Greg's departure.

“It was a massive game.

"I don't see why we can't stay up there and keep pushing for promotion.

“We worked so hard to get this win," added Richards.
