Watch the highlights and listen to the post match thoughts of Ian Holloway.

Town boss Ian Holloway was obviously delighted after watching his side’s amazing comeback and victory at Colchester on Tuesday night.

Speaking after the game, he said: “We’re trying to work on things, and I made five or six changes because it’s really important I can get everybody match fit.

“We train in the same way, we do certain things a little bit differently to everyone else because of what I’ve come up within my lifetime.

“Hanson’s been excellent, and he’s really important to us, Billy Clarke’s been excellent, but they needed a rest.”

Ollie continued: “Considering that was the first time we’ve played together, some of the football was excellent. We made terrible mistakes and it cost us two goals, we didn’t clear our lines properly.”

On Charles Vernam’s wonder goal, he added: “Chaz (Vernam) has stolen the night with a wonderful winning goal, but it was the rest of it, everything else was fantastic.

“It’s about five or six weeks now, and I’m absolutely delighted with the progress everybody’s making, and the crowd again were magnificent.

“Things at this level get stretched, and they wanted to play, so we broke up a move, we gave it to Charles Vernam in his own half, and then he’s decided to run with it.

“To be fair, it’s not a fluke, he did it the other week and scored a brilliant goal at home, but this one was even better.

“That’s what the boy’s got, all of this ability, and it’s wonderful to see when he’s confident and he’s running with it.”
