Massey feeling bullish about U's chances
Gavin Massey struck Colchester United’s winner against Port Vale – and then predicted they can achieve special things this season.
Massey netted in the second half to give the U’s a deserved 1-0 win and make it two wins out of two in League One.
Colchester spent most of the last campaign embroiled in a relegation battle.
But after opening with back-to-back wins over newly-promoted sides, forward Massey is feeling bullish about the U’s chances this season.
Massey said: “We know that we can achieve something special this season.
“All you have to do is look at what Yeovil did last season, getting promoted as massive underdogs.
“Once our team is bubbling, then anything can happen.
“To start off with six points out of six is massive for us.
“The league table stands for nothing at the moment but it’s nice to see six points next to our name after two games.
“It’s a case of maintaining that now and kicking on.
“We all know inside the dressing room what we’re capable of.
“Defensively we’re looking good and with our attacking quality as well, we can go far.”
