Defence Is Key, Says U's Adams

Defence Is Key, Says U's Adams

Promotion contenders West Brom visit Layer Road on Saturday, prompting Colchester United`s assistant manager Micky Adams to highlight the need for of a first-class defensive display. The U`s have only kept one clean sheet all season, that coming in the emphatic 3-0 victory over Preston, at Deepdale.

The next visitors come with a host of attacking talent, the likes of veteran forward Kevin Phillips, on-loan Manchester City forward Ishmael Miller and Scottish international Craig Beattie, not to mention a whole array of quality midfielders to choose from. This suggests that Colchester`s defence will need to have an excellent day, especially if the U`s are to get something from the game.

Adams told the Colchester Evening Gazette: "If you look at the goals-against column, there is no one single person you can point the finger at and say they are making errors too often."

He added: "It is a case of individual people switching off at the wrong time."

The fact that the U`s might well be under the cosh for most of the game is something of which Adams is only too aware. He added: "They have some fantastic players at the business end of the pitch and we have to be mindful of it."


Thanks to Steve for what we hope will be the first of many articles for the site!
