Colchester United boss, Kevin Keen, insisted that he was “a very proud manager” after seeing his side beat Charlton 2-1 in an FA Cup third round tie this afternoon.
First-half goals by George Moncur and Marvin Sordell, in the 28th and 41st minutes, secured the U’s a deserved passage into the fourth round.
“We deserved it. The players were fantastic. I thought they were really, really good today,” enthused Keen.
“On the back of three really good performances in the league, when we did not get our rewards, today we finally got our reward.
“It shows that so many of my players should be playing at a higher level.
