COLCHESTER United boss Geraint Williams predicts that East Anglian derby hero Scott Vernon will score a lot of goals for the club.
Hot-shot Vernon bagged a brace to sink below-par Ipswich Town 2-0 at Layer Road. The U's remain marooned at the foot of the table, and near certainties for relegation, but it was still a morale-boosting win for Williams and the team.
“Scott (Vernon) is the best finisher at the club. He's very good technically, with both feet, as was shown with his two goals,” said Williams. Vernon scored the first with his right and the second with his left foot.

“I'm also delighted for the defence and especially Dean (Gerken) for the clean-sheet. The players earned this win, and we could have scored a couple more goals in the second-half.
“The back four worked hard, and for most of today they defended well. However, Dean still had to make a couple of fine saves.
“We have just four games left, and all we can do is to get a maximum of 48 points and see what happens, though it's looking doubtful whether that would be enough,” added Williams.
