No Average Joe: But Dunne Realistic On Job Chance

No Average Joe: But Dunne Realistic On Job Chance

Joe Dunne is prepared for criticism during his interim period as Colchester manager, which is why he has been guarded about the prospects of landing it full-time.

Colchester`s failed fight-back against MK Dons on Saturday saw United lose their previously unbeaten record this season and fall behind League One`s chasing teams for the first time.

Caretaker Dunne remained quiet on his potential as the next main man at the Weston Homes, but asked fans to accept that the U`s "gave it their all" against the a so-far undefeated home side at stadium:mk.

"I`ve been in situations where you have no manager and I`m pretty sure today there will be plenty of people sitting in the stands saying: 'That`s why you need a new manager`, because of this or that reason," he explained on BBC Radio Essex.

Dunne added:"We`ve lost a game now so everything will be my fault and so on and so forth - but as players, they have to give their all. If they don`t, they will get beaten every week. But I thought they gave their all today."

Those words intimated that he fully expects more as a certainty during what remains a very uncertain time indeed for the club.
