“We got what we deserved” – Joe Dunne
JOE Dunne felt that his side “got what they deserved,” following yesterday’s disappointing 3-1 defeat at Yeovil.
Following on from back-to-back victories against Hartlepool and at Swindon, below-par Colchester United produced a lack-lustre display at Huish Park, conceding goals to Paddy Madden (2) and James Hayter.
The U’s had briefly threatened a comeback, when Jabo Ibehre poached a 25th minute equaliser, but by the end Yeovil ran out convincing winners.
“Two wins from three is a decent return. Six points from the week you would take,” explained Dunne.
“But I wanted nine, and I thought we could come here today and win.

“I thought when we equalised, we would go on and control the tempo of the game.
“But we slowed down the game too much, and in the end we probably got what we deserved.

“If you’re going to lose, then lose a certain way.
“I just felt we were a little bit off the pace in the second half, which can kind of be understandable given the effort the players put in on Tuesday (1-0 win at Swindon).
“Yeovil put us under a lot of pressure.
“I thought we controlled possession in the first half, and if you look at the goals, I think they are individual mistakes, which you can’t legislate for.
“But as I’ve always said, since I took over, I want us to play in a certain way. I felt we certainly showed progression in the first half.
“They are going to make mistakes playing that way, and get punished, but I want them still to be brave and we have to learn from today, which we will do,” added Dunne.
