‘We like playing the top teams’ – Colchester United boss Joe Dunne
Colchester United boss, Joe Dunne, is ready for the challenge of playing the league leaders, Leyton Orient, in East London tomorrow.
The Dubliner has huge respect for what the O’s have already achieved this season, but is confident that his side can bounce back from the disappointment of Tuesday night’s 1-0 home defeat by Sheffield United.
“The position that Leyton Orient are in speaks volumes for their club,” explained Dunne.
“What they’ve done is great, from a period of the last few years where they have been in and around where we’ve been, with their manager under pressure, but they have stayed with him, and stayed with the same players.
“However, we like playing the top teams.
