JOHNNIE Jackson has labelled his wonder strike against Hull City as his best ever.

The Colchester United midfielder netted a long-range screamer for his side in their 1-1 draw against the Tigers, at the KC Stadium.

Jackson is in a rich vein of goalscoring form, having scored in each of the U's last three matches, taking his tally for the season to six.

He has already doubled his overall league career goals total in this campaign alone.

And having found the net once again for his side, in addition to producing another fine all-round display, the former Spurs player was delighted to register his name on the scoresheet again.

He said: "It's probably the best goal I've ever scored.

"I don't know where I've got this right foot from!

"It was very pleasing to score - I'm just disappointed we didn't hold on to it.

"I can't remember the last goal I scored with my left - it's all headers and right-foot shots at the moment."

Having seen Jackson earn his side victory over Preston North End last Tuesday, Colchester manager Geraint Williams was delighted to see him find the net again - in spectacular fashion.

"We know Johnnie's got great ability but to do it twice in four days is fantastic," said Williams.

"With the position we're in, we need to step up to the plate and do something like that and I think it was a great goal."
