Colchester United boss Joe Dunne was very frustrated by his side’s latest defeat, a 2-0 loss at Notts County this afternoon.
The U’s were punished for another slow start, with Ronan Murray making the most of hesitant defending from Tom Eastman to break the deadlock in the fifth minute.
Defender Haydn Hollis doubled the lead with a header from a free-kick in first-half stoppage time, and the U’s could not stage a comeback in the second period.
“Obviously the result is a negative, and I’m very frustrated,” admitted Dunne.
“We have to take responsibility for what we are doing, because we have been aiding teams in the last few games.
