Colchester United boss, Kevin Keen, was understandably delighted with his side’s vital 1-0 away win at Blackpool, and their overall display, beside the seaside today.

Chris Porter rammed home what proved to be the only goal of the game, on the hour mark, although the U’s should really have won by a bigger margin, such was their domination.

Keen said: “I’m extremely happy. We played well the whole game.

“In fact, it was a total performance from my whole team, and the whole day was a very good day for Colchester United.

“If we had scored another goal, then that would have been nice, because then I would have been able to chill a little.
