Gaffer satisfied with his team's display as the Blues defeat Colchester thanks to Brett Pitman's first-half strike

Mick McCarthy was pleased to see his side defeat Colchester this evening, in front of a large travelling set of supporters from Suffolk.

The Blues ran out 1-0 winners at the Weston Homes Community Stadium thanks to Brett Pitman’s first-half strike, which also saw Town lift the Alderman Trusler Trophy with donations heading to Charity.

“Results aren’t that important in pre-season but I’d rather win than lose and I’m pleased we did in front of our fans,” the gaffer told the official Club website.

“We had a lot of fans make the trip to come and see us play, so it was nice to get a win for them. I was happy with that and a clean sheet is always nice.

“I thought Doz [Andre Dozzell] was excellent for us and it was good for 10 of the players to get 70 minutes or so.

“The ones who played 20 will all get 70 minutes on Saturday [at Cambridge].

“It was good to get the win in front of our supporters but it’s all about August 6th and Barnsley when it matters.

“But it was a good workout for us.”
