Frank Nouble’s ninth goal of the season was enough to beat Grimsby Town 1-0 at the Community Stadium yesterday afternoon, and so revive Colchester United’s flagging play-off hopes.
Nouble, playing as a centre-forward, tucked home a 25th minute winner to propel the U’s to within two points of the top seven.
“We are a young group, but we know what’s going on and we will just take one game at a time,” explained Nouble.
“We started the season really well and then tailed off, but there’s three games to go now and we have put ourselves in a good position to keep fighting.
“We had lots of chances, before I scored. We had a few chances today – but normally I think we have chances anyway. We started really brightly, and it was important to get the early goal.
