Perks Asks Fans To Keep Backing U`s

Dynamic midfielder David Perkins has appealed to Colchester supporters to keep backing the side by filling the Weston Homes stadium.

The club`s record attendance at their new ground game over the weekend as they walked away one-nil losers against rivals Southend.

It actually appeared to make a huge difference, with more than 8,000 packed in the place, as Colchester had most of the ball during the first-half.

On the impact of a fuller stadium, as Colchester prepare for two more home ties this week, Perkins told the Colchester Gazette: "It really gave us a lift. "We raised our game and we played better in the first half.

"Although the result didn`t go for us, we`d be delighted if the fans came back.

"The stadium being that full can only help us.

'We feel we`ve let the fans down against Southend and that`s the most disappointing thing."

Perkins also commented how 'brilliant' it was walking out to a big home crowd: the side will need all the support they can get in looking to bounce back from a recent run of defeats.
