'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dunne: That's the reward you get

If you have "the attitude" that's right usually you'll be rewarded with a result, and this was the case for Colchester at Swindon on Tuesday night.

Joe Dunne, as he told BBC Essex, thought that right attitude and commitment brought his side the win: 'We've asked them to be brave again, we tried to play out from the back, the attitude was spot on. The players gave their all, and that's the reward you get.

'It's still going to take time because they'll be days when it doesn't work, but they tried to do it correctly it tonight.'

The new U's boss admits that his side weren't "much of a goal threat" but the use of the ball and work off it couldn't be faulted: 'Although we didn't really get that much of a goal threat in the first half, I thought the pace of the game was good for us.

'What pleased me the most, although we are trying to be good on the ball, our off the ball play was excellent, in terms of our how we dealt with really good players.'
