Matt Looking On Bright Side

Matt Connolly has insisted that Colchester United are not dwelling on their latest defeat at the hands of Watford but instead are looking at Saturdays clash with Cardiff in a positive mood.

The defender, on a season-long loan deal from Arsenal, admitted that he and his team-mates are looking at the pluses from their game ahead of tomorrow`s trip to South-Wales.

Connelly, 19, concluded that his goal in the 3-2 loss to Watford, on Tuesday night, was nothing more than a mere consolation.

The centre-half, who has put in some impressive performances in a U`s shirt, says he would much rather Colchester take three points from a game, than see his name on the scorers' tally.

"It was nice to score but the goal didn`t mean that much because we lost that game," He told The Colchester Gazette recently.

"We gave Watford a good game and we were unlucky not to take something from the match.

"Their third goal was a good finish but we will watch it again and see what we could have done better," added Connelly.

And the England U-21 international is looking at Saturday`s trip to Cardiff in an optimistic fashion, "We`ve done quite well away from home this season and now we`ll look to get something from the Cardiff game on Saturday."

If you turn it around and ask if negativity is good, you'll get the answer. It's not, so therefore the opposite must be good!
