KEVIN Lisbie's No.1 wish for the New Year is to play his old club Charlton Athletic every week!
Hot-shot Lisbie fired Colchester United off the foot of the Championship table with a first-half brace in the 2-1 win at The Valley yesterday, so denting the promotion hopes of his former team.
The U's striker had spent 11 seasons as a Charlton player, before his summer move to United.

“It's been a magic day for me and the team,” enthused Lisbie, who has now netted eight goals for the campaign.

“We wanted to start the New Year afresh, and it's great to finally give our fans something to cheer about. They've been disappointed for quite a while.
“I've been practising my penalties. There was a two-minute delay before I could take it (injury to Madjid Bougherra), which is not what you want when you're about to take a penalty in front of your old fans, who are all booing you!
“With the second goal, the ball came off my heel and into the air, so I decided to hit it with my back to goal. I didn't know much about it until the ball hit the back of the net.
“I thought that I was going to be booed all afternoon, but the Charlton crowd were quite good to me.
“I just wish that I could play Charlton every week! I know their defenders, and particularly their strengths and weakness, which really helps,” added Lisbie.
