Colchester United boss, John McGreal, was delighted with his side’s first away win of the season, a 2-0 success at Wycombe Wanderers this afternoon.

Second-half goals from Chris Porter and Sammie Szmodics, on 63 and 82 minutes, secured a deserved win on the road, making it 10 points from a possible 15 at the start of his season.

“From the first minute to the last, the boys were excellent,” enthused McGreal.

“I thought it was an outstanding display.

“I said before the match that good sides don’t tend to lose two games on the trot, and it was important that we bounced back from the Portsmouth defeat.

“I thought our back four and the keeper (Sam Walker) were excellent, and I always fancied us to score.

“They were two good goals. Chris (Porter) and Sammie (Szmodics) have been combining well in training, and it showed out there,” added McGreal.
