Colchester United skipper, David Fox, has agreed that the U’s are making it “very tough” for themselves, following Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Crawley Town.
Fox’s wonderful free-kick, which made it 2-2 on 49 minutes, was not enough to earn the U’s any reward.
And that leaves the U’s six points adrift of safety, going into tonight’s home game against bottom club Yeovil Town – it is a meeting of the bottom two.
“Although it was a massively disappointing defeat, nothing has really changed in terms of the points we need,” insisted Fox.
“It is still mathematical, we are not out of it yet.

“We need to be ruthless against those teams around us, but there are still 10 games left and 30 points to play for.
“It’s not time to knock it on the head just yet,” added Fox.
Tonight is a ‘must-win’ game for both the U’s, and the Glovers.
