It’s time for a change of style at Colchester United
Colchester United boss, Tony Humes, admits that he will consider changing his team’s style of play, away from home, following last Saturday’s third away reverse on the trot.
Humes will look to try and tighten up his defence, following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Doncaster – the U’s have now leaked 34 goals in 16 league games, and 23 in eight away games.
“We’re going from game to game at the moment, and I think every club in the league is doing that. There’s no rhyme or reason to it,” explained Humes.
“We haven’t been consistent enough during the season.
“We were happy with our performances earlier in the season, but at Doncaster we weren’t as fluent and we weren’t as good.

“So maybe we have to change the way we play, when we go away from home.
“Sometimes maybe the opposition have looked at us, and said to themselves that ‘we can nullify them because we can counter them the longer the game goes on.’

“So we have to look at the way we play, and change our style of play away from home to give the opposition more problems.
“We have to ask ourselves – what’s the best thing, to go to away games?
“We need to start getting results out of it, because that is now three games away from home that we have lost on the bounce,” added Humes.
The U’s are on the road again this weekend, away at non-league Wealdstone in an FA Cup first round tie.
