Banter with Burns with Colchester United Supporters Association chairman Jon Burns

FEBRUARY has started brilliantly for the U’s.

Perfect squad additions, a hatful of goals and a couple of clean sheets.

Timing is everything and this is definitely the right time for the U’s to click back into form.

Just a pity that so few U’s fans have come along to witness it - hopefully that will change over the next few home games.

Huge arguments followed last Saturday’s win over Cheltenham. Whose was the better goal? U’s fans were treated to three of the best.

Kane Vincent-Young’s unchallenged run forward to hit a sweet long-range strike just inside the post.

Courtney Senior’s mazing run, leaving a least a dozen opposition players in his wake, before selflessly setting up Abo Eisa for a tap in, or big Frank Nouble using all of his hips to embarrass a defender before slamming in a left footer past a bemused keeper.

Just a pity there weren’t and more in an utterly dominant U’s win where Cheltenham failed to raise even one shot off target, let alone on target.

The one sour point was Harry Pell's hamstring giving way and let’s hope that he’s fixed soon, because he’s so important to our success.

Like I’ve said, it’s just a pity that our stands weren’t as full as they could be.

I appreciate that there is a cost but there are plenty of options if you can book up in advance and are not overly fussed where you sit.

It’s worth a look if you even have the smallest supporting interest in the U’s.

I ask this purely from the angle that I want the U’s to get promoted and I feel that a fuller stadium helps the team on the pitch.

Getting back to League One would be brilliant and not only because of the likelihood of more local derbies.

With more support the U’s stand a better chance and if they continue to play as they have these past two games, then you won’t be sorry.

With midweek results, apart from MK Dons' late winner, going well for us in the table, the U’s head to Sol Campbell’s Macclesfield tomorrow looking to maintain their play-off place and add some pressure to the top three.

Bottom dwellers have often been our banana skin as they fight tooth and nail but not so tomorrow me thinks.

I think that the U’s are quite happy to have found top gear again and won’t be looking to apply the brake and clutch anytime soon.

Safe journey to the U’s supporters and good luck U’s.
