U`s To Do A 'West Ham'?

U`s To Do A 'West Ham'?

Colchester United manager Geraint Williams has admitted the U`s will need 'something of West Ham proportions`, to beat the drop, after moving ten points adrift from safety.

After losing five on the bounce, Williams and his players still refuse to give up…

Speaking to My Football Writer, the U`s chief said: 'We're not down at the moment but it's going to be a heck of a fight and something of West Ham proportions to stay up.'

'We'll see, the performance tonight showed just how positive the lads are. I couldn't ask any more they gave 100%, every single one of them.'

'We're playing for pride and for points, but there's a massive gap at the moment and it would take a great string of results to get us out of it.' He explained, hopefully.

'Twenty-seven points and an awful lot of pride. That's what we've got to make sure, that it's a proud man who walks out in a Colchester United shirt.'

'These players are looking for someone to tell them that we have to keep going, they need someone to lead them and that's what I'll do.'

The U's now prepare to face FA Cup semi-finalists Cardiff City on Saturday: 'So Saturday's mentality will be as it has been all season, be positive, look to go and win and carry on the way we started tonight.'

'We need to get in front but we've got to keep clean sheets and we haven't done that this year.'

So the question is: Who will be our Carlos Tevez?

Unhappy Keeper Back With Norwich

Kean had come in on a 28-day from Norwich but his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium is over with Keen confirming he was 'unhappy with a couple of things.'

Panicking? Not Yet!

Before the Southend game Keen insisted he wasn't panicking, despite the U's being seven-points adrift of safety. Three-goals in the final 10-minutes lead to another defeat of course.

League 1 - Southend 3-0 Colchester

Having battled for almost an hour with 10-men three-goals in the final 10-minutes from Southend condemned Colchester to a three-nil defeat.
