Sanchez Watt puts 10-man Colchester ahead at Leyton Orient

Sanchez Watt sent Colchester United on their way to a first victory of the season, with his first goal of the campaign at Leyton Orient.

And the ex-Arsenal winger is confident that he can score a glut of goals this term – Saturday was just his second start, after an injury-plagued few weeks.

“Hopefully this is the first of many goals this season,” insisted Watt after the 2-0 win at Brisbane Road.

“I want to get double figures this season, and I also love making assists.

“I just want to help the team, and hopefully I can score the goals to lift the team up the table.”

Referring to his 62nd minute goal, Watt continued: “I just needed that one chance, that one-against-one with the keeper (Gary Woods).

“I had a race with someone (Marvin Bartley) in on goal. I didn’t have to beat a player, it was just a race, and I knew straight away that I could score.

“I was confident that I could tuck it in, and it meant such a lot to the team. I think we worked hard for this win.

“This was a big game for us, and our first win, in front of a lot of our fans who made the short journey from Colchester.

“The team grafted, and the back four were strong after the red card. The midfield grafted and Freddie (Sears) ran his socks off up front.

“It was good to get those goals, because they were the only things that had been lacking in the previous games.

“We knew that they would come at us, after we went down to 10 men, but we got a few chances ourselves. We are always happy to run at defenders with the ball at our feet.”
