Mikael Mandron feels that Colchester United are now clicking into top gear, after a sluggish start to the season.
Summer signing Mandron, who bagged a brace of goals in Saturday’s 3-1 home win over Crewe, has now netted six goals in 15 league appearances for the U’s.
John McGreal’s men have only lost one of their last seven league matches, and should soon be heading into the top half of the table for the first time this campaign.
“I feel that the season is getting going now, we are gathering momentum,” insisted Mandron.
“It took us a few games to really get going, but now we have the momentum and we need to keep that good form going.

“I’m forming a good partnership with Brandon (Hanlan). I am enjoying it. We both work really hard and we work hard in training to try and improve on that, to link up and stuff.
“Hopefully, we will get more goals in the future.

“We work hard every day, we talk a lot about what we have to do. It worked well today.
“It continues on from our recent good away performances,” added Mandron. The U’s are unbeaten in their last four away fixtures.
With regards his goals on Saturday, Mandron said: “For the first goal I was in the box, I was at the back post waiting for the ball, and it just dropped nicely for me (from Kyel Reid’s corner).
“For the second one it was all about being a great cross from Jacko (Ryan Jackson) and I was able to tap it in.
“I’m quite happy with my six goals for the season, so far. I am getting there, little-by-little, game-by-game.
“Hopefully, I can get into double figures soon, hopefully.
“I don’t set myself targets. I just try to do my best in every game, and I want to keep my form going.
“We started slowly, but after the goal (equaliser) it really helped us. We came back out after half-time looking way better.
“I think it’s credit to the whole team, because there have been games where we haven’t been able to do that – when we haven’t played too well and we haven’t been able to get a win.
“But today we managed that,” added Mandron.
