Post-Match Reaction: Chris Hutchings on Colchester

14 November 2014

Reds Assistant Manager Chris Hutchings gave his thoughts following tonight's win over Colchester United.

"It's three points - which is the main thing," said Hutchings, speaking to Barnsley Player.

"I thought for the first 15-20 minutes we played very, very well and passed it about as we wanted to.

"One or two-touch football was causing them problems and we got our goal at the right time, too - fantastic finish from Sam.

"Their first real attack, they scored their goal which was a little disappointing, and they wrestled it away from us in the middle of the first half.

"We had to dig deep and come out in the second half. We came out the blocks in the second half and we got our just rewards in the end."

After Sam Winnall's early opener, the Reds were pegged back before a Conor Hourihane penalty and Peter Ramage header made it 3-1 in the second half, with United pulling one back again through Sears.

"It's all about confidence. If you're winning games, it breeds confidence and the things that you try often come off.

"Everything's going well at this moment in time.

"It's feet firmly on the ground and it's another three points, but it's three points towards where we want to go.

"We're looking forward to the next game. We've got (Paul) Digby to come back, Ryan Williams to come back and (Marcello) Trotta to come back, so that gives us a nice problem for the next game."
