Kung-fu Ian gets even with the boss
COLCHESTER United manager John Ward says Ian Henderson owed him the late winner at Rochdale following a first half miss.
The lively wide forward hit the bar with an audacious lobbed effort in the first half.
It therefore took a level of confidence from the 25-year-old to execute a similarly delicate finish in the closing stages to win the match.
“He owed me that after the effort in the first half!” joked Ward. “So we’ll call it quits shall we?”
A player who always wears his heart on his sleeve, Henderson celebrated his strike with a two-footed karate kick on the corner flag that took it clean out the grass.
