Colchester United boss, Joe Dunne, admits that the five clubs still to play his team will consider that fixture to be an ‘easy three points.’

The U’s have five games left – against relegation rivals Stevenage, Oldham and Crewe – followed by promotion chasing Brentford and final day hosts Walsall.

“Most teams that play us now will feel – ‘that’s an easy three points’ – and our mind-set has got to be to prove people wrong now,” admitted Dunne.

“And that’s got to be our motivation.

“We need something dramatic to happen now. We need a real spark.
