Keep calm and carry on
KEEP calm and carry on.
That is the message Colchester United boss John Ward has been giving his players this week ahead of their trip to Oldham today.
The U’s saw their club record 10-game unbeaten start to the season brought to an abrupt end last weekend with a 3-0 home defeat to Huddersfield.
There’ll be no panic button pushing from the experienced Ward though who is set to stick with the 4-3-3 system which has yielded some great results on the road so far.
“I have got to make a decision as to whether to change things or simply sit tight and say that what we have done so far is pretty good.
You may also want to watch:
“I think it has to be the latter because it was only a week ago that we were discussing how good a start to the season it had been.
“If we perform like we did at MK Dons two weeks ago then we will have a very good chance of winning, but if we perform like we did against Huddersfield last Saturday then we will struggle.”
