Narrow win pleases Coley

24 September 2016

John Coleman was happy with the second half turnaround in his Stanley team as they came from behind to beat Colchester.

The Reds won 2-1 at the Weston Homes Community Stadium thanks to goals from Rommy Boco and Billy Kee having gone behind to Drey Wright's first half goal.

And the Stanley manager felt it could have gone either way.

"It was certainly a game of two halves," he said. "Colchester were comfortably better than us in the first half and they passed better, pressed better and had more shape to the game. They deservedly went in one up at the break and could probably have had more if I'm honest.

"We had to have a few harsh words at half time and I think the wind did have an effect on the game but we had to be more adventurous and we were. We still didn't hit the heights that I know we can but we improved in the second half and on the back of that improvement we scored at the right time.

"Either team could've won that game. I think Colchester will be disappointed with their second half performance but I think you have to give our defence and our midfield a bit of credit for that. We nullified the threats they had in the first half."
