Dunne delighted with narrow victory
Colchester manager Joe Dunne admitted he was delighted after leading his side to a third league win in four with a 1-0 victory over Stevenage.
Sanchez Watt grabbed the winner for the U's on 55 minutes after the visitors had been reduced to 10 men, and Dunne urged his players to enjoy the three points.
"It was a narrow win in terms of the scoreline but we should enjoy it, because we played a top side," said Dunne. "We really worked hard for it and that's what you get when you work hard.
"We stuck to our game plan in terms of playing and passing in the first half. When they went down to 10 men, we had given so much energy to the rest of the game that we started to force the ball a bit.
"We need to find the right balance with that but overall, full credit to the players.
"Sanchez scored and that's why he's at the club that he's at - his challenge is to do it more often. What he did was a fantastic piece of skill and with a game so tight, it was going to be an individual skill that opened things up and we're pleased it was us."
