COLCHESTER United winger Courtney Senior has revealed he has been spending time working on his finishing in a bid to become a more prolific scorer.

The 22-year-old has scored in each of the U's last two league games, including their 3-2 triumph at Mansfield Town.

Senior has netted three times for Colchester so far this season but the talented youngster says he is working hard to add more goals to his game.

He said: “I wouldn’t say I’m a natural finisher but right now I’m trying to stay composed and work on my goal finishing, so hopefully I can get a few more goals.

“I’m working on my end product which is a big thing that I’m trying to work on at the moment.

“I try to do some extra bits with the coaches or myself just to get those numbers up, because stats are a big thing in the game.

“My end product needs to improve and that’s something I’m working on.

“I feel like I’m playing well at the moment and scoring a few goals and I’m happy with my goal (at Mansfield).

“I think I should have got another one as well but I’ll take the one.

“It was a good move and I’m delighted with it.

“KP (Kwame Poku) showed great vision with his pass and it was a left-foot finish.”

Senior says life at the U's couldn’t be any better after a memorable few days for the club.

Senior helped Colchester claim their third win on the spin with victory at Mansfield.

Colchester’s triumph at Field Mill followed hot on the heels of their Carabao Cup triumph at Crawley Town and being handed a plum quarter-final draw at Manchester United, along with the win over Newport County seven days earlier.

John McGreal’s side lie just a point off the League Two play-off places and four points off the automatic positions and winger Senior is on a high.

He said: “It couldn’t get any better right now.

“The boys are absolutely buzzing with the cup draw but we’re also trying to push on in the league so another three points is really good.

“We’re doing well in the cup and we’ve made history for the club again in that but the league is just as important.

“It was a great win for the boys away from home – great credit to the boys for grinding out the three points.

"We scored early on and then they got a goal just before half-time, which we were disappointed about.

“But the boys came out in the second half and we played our football and got the goals.

“Mansfield aren’t a bad team so for us to win 3-2 was very good."
