Ahead of Swindon's League One clash with Colchester, striker Jamie Cureton has spoken at his dissapointment at returning to Swindon after his successful loan spell.
Cureton has ripped into the fans and Swindon Town management saying 'they didn't care about me before I left' and saying he blames himself for having to come back to Wiltshire due to his success at Layer Road.
Speaking to the Evening Gazette, Colchester's local newspaper, Cureton was very open on his feelings towards Swindon Town Football Club.
'When I was allowed to leave Swindon neither the fans nor anyone else seemed all that bothered. A new start at Colchester looked very much on the cards, but once I got going and was scoring goals, suddenly the Swindon fans were all calling for me to go back.'
Speaking on his dissapointment at having to return to the County Ground he said, 'It was my own fault in a way! Every time I scored I put a few more thousands of pounds on my own head!!'
Reflecting on his time at Colchester he said he enjoyed being top of the league and wishes he could have been there to enjoy money spinning FA Cup draws. 'At the time I was really enjoying my football, scoring plenty of goals and savouring life at the top of the table. And I felt so disappointed to have missed out on those big FA Cup ties at Sheffield United and Chelsea. I would have loved to have been there!'
In fact Cureton has been spotted at Layer Road on more than one occasion according to Colchester fans since his return to Swindon. Cureton has a love affair with the Colchester fans and had this to say on his return to Layer Road, 'I'm expecting a great reception from the fans at the start of the game, but I'm not so sure about the end! It will feel weird coming up against them tomorrow and I would have loved to have stayed at Colchester. I won't be too emotional if I score the winning goal.'
Cureton 29, will be going out with the Colchester United players after the fixture tommorrow night and revealed that U's manager Phil Parkinson tried to sign the striker before the transfer window shut "I believe the manager tried to sign me, but by then Swindon wanted me back.
