Dunne praises U's after "wonderful win"
Joe Dunne said he was proud of his Colchester United players after they recorded a fine 2-0 win at Oldham Athletic.
The U's bounced back from their 4-0 home mauling at the hands of Notts County with a deserved victory at Boundary Park, to register their first away win since the opening day of the season.
An own goal from Ellis Plummer and Jabo Ibehre's fifth goal of the season secured Colchester all three points, enabling them to leapfrog their opponents in the table.
Dunne said: "I'm immensely proud and I thought it was a wonderful win.
“It was a response from the players and they had to do it for themselves and give those travelling fans something to shout about.
“It’s a big contrast from what happened against Notts County but that happens sometimes in football.
"We wanted to do it for ourselves and the fans today and I'm immensely proud.
"It gives us a leg up going into a busy fixture programme.
"I thought we were outstanding in the first half especially and we set our stall out straight away.
"All credit to the players."
