Positive-thinking from Colchester United winger Sanchez Watt

The return of flying winger, Sanchez Watt, to the Colchester United starting line-up, was the main highlight of last weekend’s goalless draw at Walsall, new manager Tony Humes’ first match in charge.
Watt was the U’s main attacking threat during his first 90 minutes of the season, and the ex-Arsenal 23-year-old is now “hungry” for more games, and for getting amongst the goals, starting at Leyton Orient tomorrow.
Fortunately, he has fully recovered from a knee injury, which delayed his start to the new campaign until an appearance as a substitute in the previous weekend’s 3-1 home defeat to Peterborough.
“It’s just good to be back, helping out the team, and now we are going all out to get our first win,” explained Watt.
“I’ve hated just watching it all from the sidelines. It really hurt to miss all of these games.

“I’m just feeling so hungry now, and also feeling really positive.
“You’ll see that, when I’m on the pitch. I just want to be positive when I play, getting forward and making all those runs from deep.

“I love being on the ball, and I’ll be getting the ball off (left-back) Ben (Gordon) and going forward. I just need to get some more shots in, and get some goal-assists.
“My confidence is also getting up, even though I haven’t been scoring yet,” added Watt.
