COLCHESTER United do not know what it feels like to score a “bad goal,” since manager Joe Dunne took over the managerial reins, just under two months ago.

The U’s have tended to score quality goals, either superb finishes or from sweeping moves, and Dunne hopes that trend will continue against Coventry City tonight.

However, although the Sky Blues are three points behind the U’s in the League One table, they are a team in form, having thrashed Hartlepool 5-0 away last Saturday.

Dunne explained: “Coventry is another big game, and it is another opportunity for us to test ourselves against what is a big club.

“Bury (2-0 win) came here in good form, and now Coventry come here in good form.

“Anyone who has come to our stadium in recent weeks has seen good goals. We don’t seem to score bad ones.

“We have clever players who just need to believe a bit more, in what they are capable of.

“It’s also good to have kept five clean-sheets in a short space of time.”

Dunne could well name an unchanged side for this evening’s game, with recent recruit Josh Thompson again on the bench.

Ipswich Town lost 1-0 at rock-bottom Rotherham yesterday. Blues reporter Stuart Watson gives his verdict.

Ipswich Town’s inconsistent season continued with a 1-0 defeat at rock-bottom Rotherham on Saturday, the big talking point being Mick McCarthy’s decision to make nine changes to his starting XI.

The Ipswich Town ladies development team were crowned deserved champions of the Suffolk Girls and Womens Football League, after comfortably beating Copleston 6-0, in a game where plenty of chances were created but weren’t finished off by the home side.

I had a wild and foolish thought on Saturday morning.

Ipswich Town lost 1-0 at Rotherham United in a Championship match on Saturday. Here’s your Blues analysis.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has no regrets over making wholesale changes to his team for this afternoon’s 1-0 defeat at rock-bottom Rotherham United.

It’s beyond typical that I should have to write this column on the back of the 1-0 defeat at already-relegated Rotherham United after missing out on writing in the aftermath of that fantastic win over Newcastle United a week ago.

Two weeks ago, I started to look back at my five wishes set out in a column at the start of the season.
