Colchester United boss John McGreal was full of praise for his side following today’s excellent 1-0 away win at play-off chasing Luton Town.

Craig Slater fired home the winner through a crowded penalty area in the 83rd minute, following a corner.

McGreal enthused: “It’s a terrific win.

“I’m delighted with this late Christmas present.

“It was very nip and tuck throughout the game, with two good teams really going at it.
