Porter feels wanted at the U's

George Porter believes being a regular starter for Colchester United over recent weeks is helping him capture his best form.

Porter was impressive in helping the U’s claim a 1-0 win over Preston North End.

The on-loan Burnley winger walked away from the Weston Homes Community Stadium with the man-of-the-match champagne.

And having started Colchester’s last three games Porter says he is relishing playing regular football, having been starved of match action at Turf Moor prior to his January move to the U’s.

Porter said: “I feel like I’m benefiting from a run in the team.

“I’m really happy with the way things are going and the way the team is playing.

“Last year, I was coming off the bench and being an impact sub.

“But the gaffer here has given me a chance and I’m playing consistently, so things are going well for me."

You're a great player, who gives it 100% throughout the game. Glad to have you on board.

I love watching George play. I would imagine the full backs are just about managing to untwist themselves by the time they get home!

The lad is class and has certainly made an impact in the last three games(unlike David Wright) maybe a possible signing in the offing?
He is what we have been missing on the wing, flair, industry, commitment and discipline.
Up the good old white and blues

Disagree with your comment about Wright. Wright has been one of the key players and an unsung hero for the U's. He helps to control the defence, fills in their positions when they are loose, he also has a vision to see players on the run and pass it to them. He is the voice you hear shouting at the players. Since he has been in the performance has been a lot stronger. However I agree about your comments about George.

Definitely shown his class and overall ability since being in the starting eleven. Would love to have him onboard as a permanent player before the start of next season. Enjoy the champers.

Steve86 - Sorry I have to disagree with the plaudits for Wright. He is slow,his kit is always pristine at the end of the game, have yet to see him put a descent tackle in. Yes, he has experience but so did Bobby Bowry and Wright reminds me of him. At times we are playing with 10 men, the game seems to pass him by. He is not the reason we are playing better.
