COLCHESTER United striker Theo Robinson admits the dream combination of games and goals is proving a "perfect scenario".

The Southend United loanee has been a major hit with the U's and created more headlines by scoring twice in Saturday's 3-0 victory against Plymouth Argyle.

It swelled his tally for the club to 11 goals, including four in the last three games, having also netted twice in Colchester's previous home fixture against Swindon Town.

Now he hopes to find the back of the net again in tonight's League Two showdown against Ian Holloway's Grimsby Town, at the JobServe Community Stadium.

"I'm enjoying it so much at the moment," said the 31-year-old.

"As a player, when you're in the team and getting regular football, you're happy.

"And when the goals are going in, too, it's a perfect scenario.

"As a striker, that's what I'm here for and long may it continue.

"Saturday was a great day, both for the team and me personally.

"I got two goals, although it should have been four.

"I told the lads afterwards that I was disappointed not to finish with a hat-trick.

"But the most important thing was putting three points on the board and that's what I was most happy about.

"Plymouth are another top team so beating them like that made a bit of a statement.

"We took our opportunities and, to be honest, it doesn't really matter who scores the goals - all that matters is winning games and getting promoted."

Robinson believes he and his team-mates must learn lessons from previous matches against bottom-half teams, ahead of tonight's clash with 18th-placed Grimsby Town.

The U's dropped points against struggling pair Stevenage and Morecambe just after Christmas and then saw their proud 16-match unbeaten run grind to a halt at Cambridge United, on February 1.

"Saturday was great but's it's been and gone now. It's done," added Robinson.

"Tonight's game is ten times more important and it's about sticking together, as a team, and trying to produce a similar performance.

"Hopefully if we do that we'll get another three points.

"Everyone knows we've dropped points against sides from the bottom-half of the table but it's about learning lessons and making sure that doesn't happen again.

"We'll certainly go into tonight's game with real confidence after scoring three goals and keeping a clean sheet about Plymouth.

"It was all anyone could ask of us and everyone's on a high.

"Everyone's working hard and everyone's got their mojo."
