Colchester United boss, Tony Humes, was disappointed with Sean Clohessy’s response to being substituted, at Doncaster on Saturday.

U’s right-back Clohessy refused to shake Humes’ hand, when leaving the pitch to make way for substitute Dean Gordon on 65 minutes during Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at the Keepmoat Stadium.

“That will be dealt with, because it is not right,” blasted Humes, with reference to Clohessy’s clear snub.

“We are all in this together. We are a team, from the management side to the playing side, and everyone is in it together.

“Everybody has got a responsibility to make sure that we stick together, because we have dropped back into the bottom three. We have got to have people who want to fight for this club.

“That’s what I have now got to determine over the remainder of the season – who is with us and who is not with us.

“It’s about everybody. Whatever happens out there, it’s got to be spot on, everyone has got to be professional and disciplined in everything that we do,” added Humes.
