Colchester United boss John McGreal was delighted with his side’s 2-1 home win over trouubled Notts County at a foggy Weston Homes Commuity Stadium this afternoon.
Richard Duffy’s 75th minute own goal decided today’s contest, after Kurtis Guthrie had headed home a 24th minute leveller following Elliott Hewitt’s 17th minute opener for the Magpies.
“It was a different kind of win for us today, as opposed to the rest of the season,” enthused McGreal.
“I’m pleased with the way we came back from a goal down to win, although it wasn’t pretty.
“We were playing an experienced Notts County side, who have a lot of quality in their ranks.
“It was a bad goal for us to concede, because we did not deal with the initial throw-in and then we didn’t deal with the corner.
“But Denny Johnstone deserves credit for his role in the equaliser. He works so hard and I’m sure his goal will come.

“I haven’t got a clue what happened with our winning goal. I thought that Denny (Johnstone) had got it, but the fourth official told me that it was deflected in as an own goal.
“But they all count,” added McGreal.
