PROVEN goalscorer Luke Norris is confident that his new club Colchester United can record their ninth League Two win of the season tomorrow when they are pitted against the striker’s former team Swindon Town at the Colchester Community Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

Norris led Swindon’s League Two goalscoring chart last season when notching 13 times under both David Flitcroft and Phil Brown during the club’s failed promotion bid.

A summer switch to Colchester for an undisclosed fee – which Town boss Brown admitted was too good to turn down – has prompted a change in Norris’ fortunes though, with Colchester sitting pretty inside the play-off frame.

With eight goals and three assists in the league to date, Norris is now hoping to blip Town’s slight momentum following last week’s win at Notts County and instead stretch United’s purple patch into November.

Norris told Colchester United's official club website: “We had a good go last year, but fell just short.

“It was an injury hit season last year, and I still managed 14 goals. We should’ve achieved a lot more, but it wasn’t to be.

“I feel we’ve got a good chance of beating Swindon on Saturday, because they’ve been hit and miss so far.

“I had an ongoing issue, that’s finally been sorted and I’m reaping the rewards.”

The 25-year-old admitted Town’s relegation campaign coupled with last year’s failed promotion push meant the time was right to depart SN1 and instead seek a fresh challenge in Essex.

With 28 points from 16 games, Norris is confident that John McGreal has assembled a squad that can deliver success.

He added: “It was time for a change. Because of the ambition of Colchester and what they want to do here, I’m really glad I made the decision to move.

“I think this squad has a great chance of delivering success this year.”
