Southend United boss Steve Tilson was pleased with his side's latest victory, a 1-0 success at Huddersfield Town.
The Blues have won eight of their last ten League One games and are mounting a late bid for a play-off place.
Tilson told The Echo: "I thought it was a really good performance. It was a well-deserved win and we could and probably should have won by more.
"Steve Mildenhall didn't really have much to do in goal and in the end they were forced to launch long throws into the box to try and put pressure on us.
"We could have done with Leeds losing to be honest, but Colchester haven't done us any favours again and it's going to be very difficult."
