Colchester boss John Ward is determined to build on Tuesday night's return to winning ways when they host Exeter this weekend.
The U's had lost their last four games to slip further off the play-off pace in League One.
But Ashley Vincent's second-half goal secured a much-needed 1-0 win over Oldham and Ward wants more of the same against the Grecians.
"I was pleased for them, because they deserved more than four defeats on the trot," he said.
"There's a respite now and we'll see who's in on Thursday morning and be ready to go again against Exeter on Saturday."
