“Anything is possible” – insists Colchester United’s George Moncur

George Moncur holds onto possession at Blackpool

George Moncur is adamant that Colchester United can defy the odds, and stay up.

Despite Saturday’s 1-0 win at Blackpool, and a recent unbeaten run stretching to four games, the U’s remain deep in trouble near the foot of the table.

Kevin Keen’s men have five games remaining, and they must win all five to give themselves the best possible chance of avoiding relegation.

A haul of 10 points gathered, from their last four games, with away wins at Coventry and Blackpool, a 4-1 victory over Doncaster and a goalless draw against Millwall, suggests that the U’s have the potential to go on a long winning run.

But they are still eight points adrift of safety, effectively nine due to a poor goal difference.

Moncur, though, is riding on the crest of a wave.

“Anything is possible – the Lord above, that’s why I keep believing. Hopefully we can do it again,” insisted Moncur, who is a devout Christian.

He continued: “We will take one game at a time, and I think we’ve got to win all five.

“We’ve got to have that attitude. I believe it, and so does the whole team.

“If we beat Peterborough on Saturday, then we’ve got Crewe away (next Tuesday evening). They are both massive games.

“If we win both of them, then we have definitely got a right chance,” added Moncur.
