Sammie Szmodics, so frustrated not to get anything from last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Cambridge United, is confident that Colchester United will extend their excellent home record at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Attacking midfielder Szmodics was guilty of missing a good early chance in the loss at the Abbey Stadium, but believes that the U’s will bounce back with three points against visiting Crawley Town on Saturday, and then three more against visiting Chesterfield next Tuesday evening.

“We didn’t really play well enough at Cambridge, but we should still have come away with a draw really. They just had that two minute spell,” explained Szmodics, following today’s training session.

“This week has all been about recovery in the first part of the week, and then just prepping for the big game on Saturday.

“I had a good chance early doors at Cambridge when I ran out with the goalie. I really should have scored.

“Mikael (Mandron) should have scored and Sanmi (Odelusi) should also have scored with his header, so we had about four good chances.

“To lose 1-0 was therefore very disappointing, but that game has gone now.

“In our last home game we won 5-1 (against Forest Green Rovers), so I’m looking forward to us getting nine points out of our next three games.

“I’m very confident, especially of getting six points out of next two games,” added Szmodics.
