Wycombe midfielder Luke O'Nien scored another sublime goal to rivals his goal against Chesterfield weeks previously.

The midfielder scored the all-important third goal in the 3-1 victory over Colchester with a rocket of a strike which gave opposing keeper Sam Walker absolutely no chance.

However, O'Nien had a more important role defensively in keeping Colchester's danger man, Sammie Szmodics, quiet.

Although Szmodics scored a late consolation with an excellent strike, O'Nien shackled the Colchester number 10 brilliantly after being asked by Gareth Ainsworth to keep tabs on him.

O'Nien said: "The gaffer gave me a job and put a lot of trust of me and if he tells me to do something I am going to do it to the letter.

"I am glad I could do that but a bit disappointed that he scored although we got the three points and that is the most important thing."

The goal against Colchester should come as no real surprise due to the amount of work O'Nien puts in during training, especially on his perceived weaker left foot.

He added: "My left foot is better than my right to be honest.

"I have been working hard and the boys had a dig at me saying it is about time I scored one of them.

"It was very sweet in front of my family and all the fans and it was nice to get that breathing space to put us 3-0 up."

With 19 games remaining, O'Nien feels their cup exit the week before could play a key hand in keeping up their promotion push.

He commented: "It will be an advantage to get rest during the week and it is always a benefit that now we can just focus on the league."
