Latics boss salutes fab four

Date published: 10 December 2012

Colchester 0, Athletic 2

ATHLETIC manager Paul Dickov said the work done by his attacking players had a “devastating” effect on Colchester.

Dickov was more than pleased with the way his men took the game to out-of-form opponents.

“At times, our attacking play was devastating; it could have been a lot more but for their goalkeeper (Mark Cousins) putting in a really good performance,” said Dickov.

“They couldn’t cope with it. As well as we played, they worked their socks off. I am delighted with it.”

Jean-Yves Mvoto headed in a second of the season for Athletic in the first half, but before Brian Wilson turned inadvertently into his own net, a second goal had proven elusive despite Athletic dominating the contest.

Dickov added: “We went in one up and said to the boys the next goal was important. We got it and could have won by three or four.

“The only slight criticism is that once we went 2-0 in front, we had a 10-minute spell where we stopped doing the right things.

“But that apart, particularly for an away performance, it was fantastic.”
