Sam Walker insists that Colchester United must get their away form in order, after suffering their fourth away defeat on the bounce at Cheltenham last weekend.

A miserable away record is holding back the U’s, and keeper Walker, who was man-of-the-match during the 3-1 defeat at Whaddon Road, which included a penalty save, has been left frustrated by these away-day blues.

After this Saturday’s home match against Wycombe, the U’s are on the road again twice next week at Grimsby (Tuesday) and Yeovil Town (Saturday week).

“It’s becoming incredibly frustrating, and it’s becoming all too familiar,” rued Walker.

“It’s not good enough to keep relying on our home form, while not doing enough on the road. Something needs to be done, certainly.

“Four away games in and we’ve not got any points, that’s not good enough. We’ve got a lot of away games left, and we have to rectify it.

“It’s difficult to put it down to a specific reason,” added Walker.

It’s been another week with more losses – but the double whammy on this occasion is that these have been suffered both on the pitch at Stoke and off the field of play, in the reporting of our latest set of accounts. In all honesty, there’s no surprise in either.
