Colchester's Dominic Vose and Bristol City's Martin Paterson go for the ball during Saturday's 2-2 draw.

There has been no stopping Dominic Vose, since his recall to the U’s starting line-up.

Attacker Vose had spent four games on the bench, before returning to the side with a dynamic display in last week’s 1-0 win over Shrewsbury.

The ex-West Ham 20-year-old continued the good work against Bristol City, and now has Wolves on his radar.

“It’s good to be back in the team,” explained Vose, ahead of tonight’s game at Molineux.

“I had started the previous seven games, before I had a spell on the bench, so maybe a rest was overdue.

“I definitely feel part of the team, but it’s not about me as an individual, it’s about the team.

“Shrewsbury was a massive win for us. That has provided us with a good platform to push on.

“All the games have been close, even when we were losing.”

Vose has made 20 appearances for the U’s, since he initially arrived on a monthly contract at the end of October, 14 of these from the start.

A versatile front-runner, who can operate down either flank and also behind a target man, Vose is now looking to break his scoring duck.

Remarkably, he is still searching for the first senior professional goal of his career, although he came so close at Crawley (hit the post) and against Shrewsbury (struck the bar).

“I think the woodwork is my best friend at the moment!” joked Vose.

“With that sort of luck, I don’t think I am going to get a goal this season! I hit the post at Crawley and the bar against Shrewsbury, but hopefully I will score soon, or maybe hit the other post!

“Everyone has always told me that I should always shoot more, and I am comfortable with shooting.

“Throughout my career I haven’t taken shots when I should have, so I think it’s something I can add to my game. It’s just a case of letting it go sometimes.”
