COLCHESTER United boss Geraint Williams praised Teddy Sheringham for his role in the U's second away victory of the season.

Sheringham marked his return to the starting line-up, for the first time in 11 weeks, with a first minute goal in a great win at Hillsborough.

Williams joked: “It was Teddy's pace that got behind their defence for the goal! It was a bit of a surprise to see him there!”

But the Welshman added: “Teddy's top quality and he took his goal well. It was a great start for us, and he made a big impact.

“It was a great result for the players. They deserved this win. It's been coming for a long while, like at Wolves in the week when we hit the post at the start and at the end of the game.

“Going forward we were a big threat, and it's just a disappointing that we didn't go on to get the third and fourth goals in the second-half.

“I have players with stitches, and players with concussion, but we at Colchester have to play flat out to compete at this level. This win is no more than we deserved.”
