Tony Humes has pointed to Colchester United's character as the reason for his sides recent improvement.The U's recovered to beat Chesterfield 2-1 on Tuesday evening, and stretched their unbeaten run to three matches.
Chesterfield went ahead after barely a minute when Sam Clucas fired past Sam Walker, but substitute Rhys Healey equalised five minutes after half-time when he finished emphatically from Sanchez Watt's pass.
Freddie Sears then netted an excellent winner late on to ensure the U's have now taken seven points from their last nine available.
Manager Humes has hailed the togetherness his side have shown in recent weeks: "It's another game we've come from behind in to take the points and it grows belief and a real team spirit," he said.
"We're delighted to have won the game after having the early setback of conceding the goal and losing Frankie Kent in the first minute.
"We were on the back foot straight away from the outset and we weren't as fluent or controlled as we had been. But we battled, we showed character and stuck together and scored two fantastic goals to win the game."
