Colchester United might be on a five-game winning run, with 22 points collected from a possible 24 in their last eight matches, but midfielder Owen Garvan thinks that performances can improve still further.

“We have got a feeling that we are going to win matches, every time we go out there,” explained Garvan.

“I had that feeling for a while when I was at Crystal Palace.

“But I don’t think we are playing unbelievable football,” admitted Garvan.

The last time the U’s won six league games on the bounce was back in their promotion campaign of 2005-06.

Garvan added: “It might not be pretty at Newport, but we are prepared for a battle.”
