Colchester United boss, Tony Humes, knows that his team’s job is only half-done, following today’s terrific 3-1 home win over play-off chasing Barnsley.

Second-half goals by Gavin Massey, Jacob Murphy and George Moncur sealed back-to-back wins for the U’s, for the first time this season, cancelling out a first-half opener from Tykes striker George Waring.

A haul of 10 points from a possible 12, from their last four games, has lifted the U’s to within two points of League One safety.

But there is still a long way to go.

“We’ve got to keep on doing this,” insisted Humes, after today’s victory.

“We’ve got to enjoy this victory, of course, but then we’ve got to face up to the next challenge, which is away at Coventry this Saturday.
