COURTNEY Senior believes their long unbeaten league run means they will head into their big clash with leaders Swindon Town tonight with plenty of momentum.

The U’s host the Robins at the JobServe Community Stadium on the back of a 15-match unbeaten league run and have not lost since mid-October, in League Two.

John McGreal’s side lie fifth in the table – four points off the automatic promotion places – and ahead of their meeting with Swindon, winger Senior feels the U’s are in a good place.

Senior said: “Every game is a big game and we’re looking forward to it.

“We’re 15 unbeaten and it’s a very good run.

“I feel like we should be winning a few more games but it’s given us a momentum going into the next match and it’s still a very positive run, in any league.

“We just play our football and I think sides are scared to play us, due to our run.

“There’s still a lot of games to play so we’ll see how it pans out and carry on getting our points.

“We were a little bit disappointed we didn’t win at Exeter but they’re doing well.

“To go there and get a point is still a big positive and we’re still unbeaten, so we’ll take that positive and move onto Tuesday.

“If we can get the three points, then the point that we got at Exeter will be a very good one.

“We felt that we deserved to win the game – we played the better football in the first half.

“They were better in the second half but I feel that our own mistakes led to their chances.”

Senior returned to the fray last week after a frustrating injury lay-off which saw him miss five of Colchester’s games.

The 22-year-old was laid low by quad and groin problems but is now back involved and has appeared as a second-half substitute in each of the U’s last two games.

“I’m feeling good in myself but I feel I need to get back up to speed, which is key,” added the former Brentford youngster.

“Coming off the bench is quite hard but I’m training fully now and back in the squad, so hopefully I can get a week or two weeks training in and start to prove myself again.

“I missed a lot of games after Christmas which was very annoying but I’m staying fit.

“The first one was my quad before the Man United game and then I came back and did my groin, which was a bit annoying but that’s how football goes.

“Now it’s about staying fit, doing a few extra things to stay fit and get back on the pitch again.”
