FRANK Nouble has set his sights on helping Colchester United register three successive league wins for the first time this season when they travel to play lowly Macclesfield Town tomorrow.

The promotion-chasing U’s travel to Moss Rose in confident mood, following successive wins against Cheltenham Town and Northampton Town.

John McGreal’s side have been firing on all cylinders at both ends of the pitch, scoring seven goals in that time and keeping successive clean sheets.

And ahead of the clash with Sol Campbell’s Silkmen, forward Nouble would like nothing better than to make it three wins in a row.

Nouble said: “I don’t think we’ve won three in a row this season, so that’s a target.

“It’s now the business end of the season – this is where you get your money.

“Mentally, we realise we’re in a great position and we just have to capitalise on it.

“Teams have pretty much played the same amount of games now and we’re just looking forward to playing as many games as possible, now nearly everyone’s fit.

“The winter period has gone now where there are a lot of games in a short space of time.

“There’s 14 games left and I think every game is like a final, for all of the teams in the top eight or nine fighting for automatic or play-off places.

“We can’t look too far ahead – it’s just about Macclesfield now.

“Top three should be in the thinking for every team in the top eight and we’re no different to that.

“Macclesfield have picked up and I’m sure they’ll be fighting for their lives on Saturday.

“We know it’ll be a tough test and the players will be wanting to impress their young new manager.

“But it’s all about us and if we do what we can do well, I’m sure we’ll be happy whatever the outcome is.

“We’re looking forward to it – it’s another tough game away from home.”

Nouble has been in fine form of late and has hit the net in each of Colchester’s last two games.

His wonder strike in the 3-0 win over Cheltenham Town last weekend is a candidate for the club’s Goal of the Season award and the former West Ham United youngster admits he has made a habit of scoring spectacular goals, throughout his career.

He said: “I don’t score tap-ins or rarely!

“I rarely score goals like the one against Northampton – it’s usually a strike or a bit of skill.

“I was really happy with that goal because it came at a crucial time of the game and we wanted to make a little gap between us and them.

“It would be nice to get a tap-in as Szmods gets them all and scores all the great goals – he scores everything!”

Having played for much of the season in a wide attacking role, Nouble is currently spearheading Colchester’s forward line in a central position.

The 27-year-old has always said that playing in the middle is his favoured role but insists he has happy to play where asked.

He added: “We’ve got a lot of attacking players here – I realise that.

“We’re all different and if I’m playing up there, I’m different to Mandron or Norris.

“It’s working well for me so I have to keep playing well but I enjoy playing up there.

“I prefer it there than out wide – that’s the truth and I’ve never hidden that.

“But if the team is winning and playing well, it doesn’t matter where I’m playing.

“I’ve never been in a team where it’s been said I’m a centre-forward or a wide man – I’ve just been an attacking player.

“I haven’t moaned about that and I’m so happy where I am.”
