COLCHESTER United manager Joe Dunne hailed today’s 2-1 home win over Leyton Orient as a “big three points.”
The U’s took a giant stride towards League One safety, thanks to first-half goals from Gavin Massey and Drey Wright, plus Sam Walker’s superb 78th minute penalty save to deny Kevin Lisbie.
The Essex club are now six points clear of the bottom four, after rivals Scunthorpe and Oldham both lost, to Preston and Carlisle respectively.
“It’s a big victory and a big three points,” enthused a rather relieved U’s boss.
“It was not pretty, and we looked very nervous as a team today.

“But we were resilient. We are all a bit drained, and for the final 25 to 30 minutes it was really just up to whether Leyton Orient would score, which they didn’t.
“It was backs-to-the-wall, let’s be honest, but we got through it,” added Dunne.
