Colchester United boss Joe Dunne admitted that today’s 1-0 home defeat to Oldham was a “big blow” in terms of the U’s staying in League One.
However, Dunne is still adamant that the U’s can avoid relegation – they remain two points clear of the relegation zone, with three games to play.
“It was another frustrating afternoon for us,” admitted Dunne.
“It was a difficult game to lose, and it’s a big blow in terms of us trying to survive in the league.
“We did enough not to lose this game, that’s for sure.

“We took the game to Oldham and I don’t think our keeper had a save to make all match!
“But once again we have conceded just before half-time. It’s a mental thing, and that’s how it’s been for 43 games.

“The goal is an own goal, it’s a wicked deflection, but we must not feel sorry for ourselves.
“We are not down. There are still nine points to play for,” added Dunne.
An own goal by Tom Eastman, on the stroke of half-time, proved the difference between the two sides.
The U’s travel to relegation rivals Crewe on Easter Monday.
