COLCHESTER midfielder Kem Izzet insists that his goal-drought will soon end after coming close to netting an equaliser at Wolves on Saturday.
The U's six-match unbeaten run was ended by Jay Bothroyd's 51st minute strike in a 1-0 defeat at Molineux. But the Essex visitors dominated the last half-hour and could count themselves a shade unfortunate to lose their first match since August.
Izzet is still waiting to chalk up his first goal of the campaign. In fact, the 26-year-old has not scored for two-and-a-half years. But he was cursing his luck when keeper Matt Murray clawed his long-range shot around the post with 12 minutes remaining.
“All my game needs is a goal at the moment. I'm happy with the way I'm performing otherwise,” insisted Izzet, whose lengthy spell without a goal includes a one-year absence through injury.
“To tell you the truth, I thought the ball was going in with my chance. The keeper managed to get his hand to it and push it around the post. It was a good save.
