Colchester United boss Joe Dunne insists that a second successive relegation campaign is “unacceptable.”
The Dubliner is dismayed by the U’s dip in results, which has seen them facing another final two weeks of torment.
“What’s incredibly disappointing for me is how badly we are finishing the season, in terms of results,” rued Dunne.
“It’s incredibly disappointing, because there’s not one game of recent weeks, other than Peterborough (2-0 away defeat), when we haven’t at least been in the game and been as good or not better than the opposition, and yet still lost.
“It’s very difficult as a manager to continue to accept that.
“It’s very hard for us all at the moment.
“We have been here before, and we have to be there again unfortunately.

“This is not where I want to be in my managerial career, taking this club into another relegation dogfight which is unacceptable to me.
“One win in seven is not a great run, going into the last three. I have spoken to the players, and told them how I feel,” added Dunne.
