Prolific duo do it again

PROLIFIC marksmen Jamie Cureton and Chris Iwelumo were on target again as Colchester United charged to their 11th home victory on the trot, at the expense of Wolves this afternoon.

PROLIFIC marksmen Jamie Cureton and Chris Iwelumo were on target again as Colchester United charged to their 11th home victory on the trot, at the expense of Wolves this afternoon.

Layer Road remains a garrison, thanks to first-half strikes from the U's on-fire duo. Both have now netted 13 goals for the season.

Cureton broke the deadlock after only four minutes, with a sweet free-kick that flew through the defensive wall and past keeper Matt Murray.

But his strike-force partner Iwelumo was not to be outdone, scoring his 13th of the season in the last minute of the first-half. The Scotsman did seem to control Dean Gerken's clearance with his hand, but he still had much to do. Iwelumo fended off the challenge of Gary Breen to blast a shot between Murray's legs.

Wolves did pull a goal back in the dying seconds of the game. Defender Neill Collins bundled home from a free-kick, but it was too little too late for the Midlanders.

Colchester are therefore going great guns. They are back in the play-off zone, and Cureton and Iwelumo will be looking to add to their combined tally of 26 goals at QPR on New Year's Day.
