Craig Eastmond’s first goal of the season ended Colchester United’s terrible run, at Yeovil on Saturday.

And now ex-Arsenal midfielder Eastmond is looking for the U’s to build on this 1-0 win.

“It was a positive performance from the team, and positive for me to get the winner,” enthused Eastmond.

“George Moncur cut the ball back and found me. There was a little slot for me to aim at, and it was a good finish.

“It’s a big push for us, obviously with where we are in the table and to go into the Christmas period with this win.
