Price, signed on loan from Millwall last week, said: "I got the first nick on the cross, then the defender got the second one, so it was my goal. I was off and celebrating like Shearer, so it's definitely mine."
The Welshman added: "The people who won it for us were the fans. They got right on to the referee's back and they dented Colchester's confidence a little bit. They gave us a real lift and we won comfortably in the end.
"It turned right round when I set the first goal up and then scored the second, and everything lifted. The rest is history."
