BRANDON Comley says their shock cup win over Tottenham Hotspur is a result that will live with Colchester United’s players forever.

The U’s are still on a high following their magnificent Carabao Cup third-round triumph over Premier League Spurs, where they prevailed on penalties after the tie finished 0-0 after 90 minutes.

Comley played his part in helping Colchester record one of the biggest cup results in their history and the midfielder says it is a night he will never forget – even if he did risk upsetting his Spurs-supporting father!

Comley said: “We came away with a result against Tottenham that if we’re being honest, people didn’t expect.

“It’s crazy – I didn’t think before the game that it was going to end like that.

“It was unreal and I’m not really sure it’s happened - it’s still surreal for me.

“That night will live with us forever.

“Some people don’t get that chance – to play a big team like Tottenham and win the way we did.

“We took them all the way and they didn’t score against us – it was a remarkable game.

“The boys worked their socks off and we got our just rewards.

“If you’d have said beforehand that we’d beat Swindon, then Crystal Palace and then Tottenham, you’d bite someone’s hand off.

“Our main focus is the league and we’re pushing for the promotion spots.

“That’s our goal ultimately but the cup run is a nice little bonus, as well.

“My Dad’s a Spurs fan and we were having bits of banter about it.

“I got (Erik) Lamela’s signed shirt for him and he was happy with that - I think he was happier with that than me beating Spurs!

“But he was proud and felt the team performed really well.”

Comley found himself up against the likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura in the third-round tie and says he enjoyed pitting his wits against leading internationals.

“You don’t get much of a chance to challenge yourself against the likes of Dele Alli, who you see on TV,” said the Montserrat midfielder.

“I want to measure myself against the highest opposition I can and I relish that chance – it allows you to expand your football knowledge playing against higher opposition.

“To say that we’ve come out on top in a game against them is something you can just dream of really.

“Hopefully it’s something that can drive us on.”

Comley has already switched his focused back on League Two and a trip to play Macclesfield Town this weekend.

Colchester are aiming to make it three straight wins and maintain their new-found momentum.

Comley added: “We switch straight back on to the Saturday game and playing our usual fixtures.

“We’re focused on winning the game and we’ll be back straight on it this weekend.

“We have got a very good squad this year and if someone’s tired, someone else can go in and replace them and it won’t weaken the side – I think that’s the case this year.”
