Colchester United boss, John McGreal, admits that he did not expect the slow start that his side have endured during the first month of this season.
The U’s entertain Crawley Town on Saturday, the first of back-to-back home games with Chesterfield due to visit next Tuesday evening.
At the moment, they are down in 20th spot with just four points gathered from their first five games, and just one win, albeit that was a crushing 5-1 victory over Forest Green Rovers in their last home league outing.
“I did not expect it to go this way, obviously not,” said McGreal following today’s training session at Florence Park, Tiptree, ahead of the visit of Harry Kewell’s Crawley.
“It’s been a tough start, with some tough games, but I honestly believe that we are not too far away.
“It can all change in a heart-beat in this division (League Two). A couple of wins and it all changes,” added McGreal.
