‘Our position is false’ – insists Colchester United boss Joe Dunne
Colchester United manager, Joe Dunne, insists that his side are in a “false position” at the moment.
The U’s are down in 19th spot, and only clear of the relegation zone on goal difference, following Saturday’s unlucky 2-1 defeat at Leyton Orient, and ahead of tomorrow night’s visit of fifth-placed Rotherham.
“I think our position is false at the moment, but the results are not,” confirmed Dunne.
“We have to keep believing in ourselves and believing that it will turn, because eventually it will.
“One day we will probably be horrendous in a game and go off with a 1-0 win into the sunset, and not moan about it.

“I’m a risk taker. We wanted to go for the win (at Leyton Orient).
“Ryan (Dickson) took the long throw again, because we’d just scored off one (Marcus Bean’s equaliser) and we wanted to stay on the front foot, which is what we’d do if we were at home.

“We were set up for the counter, but it’s just a lucky break and a good finish from (Moses) Odubajo,” added Dunne, with reference to the O’s late winner.
The U’s have only taken one point from a possible 15 in their last five games.
And tomorrow they entertain a Rotherham side who thumped Notts County 6-0 on Saturday.
However, at least the U’s will be strengthened by the return of winger Sanchez Watt after a three-match suspension.
