Price pays tribute to Cumbrians fans
The Cumbrians were down to 10 men when Clive Platt put Colchester ahead in the second half after Tom Taiwo's two yellow card offences, but Price set up Ben Marshall's equaliser and then clipped home a 73rd-minute winner to cap a memorable debut. 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."
