COLCHESTER United boss John Ward is fully aware that other clubs are continuing to monitor the performances of his free-scoring midfielder, Anthony Wordsworth.

The talented Wordsworth tucked home his eighth goal of the season to seal a hard-earned 1-0 win at Hartlepool.

The victory propelled the U’s up to 10th in the League One table, just four points adrift of the play-offs.
