‘We are going to get better’ – Colchester United keeper Sam Walker
Six weeks into the new season and Colchester United keeper, Sam Walker, believes that the U’s are already proving a few people wrong.
Rather than still reeling from last season’s relegation to League Two, the U’s have adapted well to life in the fourth tier.
They notched their fourth win from seven league starts, with a 3-2 home success over fellow-relegated team Blackpool last Saturday, and are looking forward to a short trip to Barnet today.
“We’ve had a pretty impressive start to the season, and the best thing is that there are things we can work on to make us even better,” explained Walker.
“And we are going to get better, we are already fifth in the league and only a couple of points off the top of the league. It is really encouraging.

“I think a lot of people didn’t expect us to start as well as we have.
“We’ve dropped down and sometimes it can take time to adjust. Obviously you see Blackpool today (on Saturday), they are not doing quite as well as us and finding it difficult to adjust.

“We know the league we are in and we know what we have got to do. We’ve got a lot of serious belief in the team, and I’m really positive about what we can do.
“We’ve bounced back from defeats twice now. Good teams grind out results and they don’t tend to lose two in a row
“We are not going to win in the same way every game. We won a bit ugly against Blackpool. It was a bit of grind, with us kind of digging in, but we showed that we have got that side to us.
“Confidence is high going into Barnet this weekend,” added Walker.
