Pick-me-up will be no problem, insists Andy Bond
ANDY Bond has no doubt that Colchester United will “pick themselves up,” following the midweek reverse at Yeovil, for this Saturday’s difficult League One opener at Preston.
Midfielder Bond had a frustrating night at Huish Park, as the U’s bowed out of the Capital One Cup 3-0 in disappointing fashion.
But the ex-Barrow man will be ready and waiting for a stern test at Deepdale.
Bond insisted: “Now we will go again on Saturday. We’ll pick ourselves up for a hard game at Preston. Hopefully, the Yeovil game was just a glitch.
“Mark (Cousins) kept us in the game on Tuesday night.

“It could have been a lot more than three. That’s Mark’s job, to stop the shots, and I thought he did very well.
“We were very disappointed because we came to Yeovil with high hopes. We couldn’t wait for the season to start.

“But we conceded a sloppy goal (to Richard Hinds) after three minutes.
“We picked ourselves up again, but conceding a second goal just before half-time killed us.”
Manager John Ward is set to make a few changes for the game at Preston, with Freddie Sears hopefully back in the squad after missing the Yeovil game because of family issues.
