A Clear Focus

24 January 2013

U's boss knows the task in hand.

He said: "

The U's slipped into the bottom four on the back of their defeat against Scunthorpe last time out at the Weston Community Stadium, and Joe believes that has only increased his side's desire to kick start their season and get back up the table.

U's boss Joe Dunne says he and his team have a real focus on the task in hand, as they look to move away from trouble in League One.I feel if the mindset is right, we will be fine. If we're going to get out of it, we're going to need to do it together. In terms of the squad, I want everyone to chip in between now and the end of the season. 

"We know exactly what we need to do and we're going to go at it hammer and tong now until the last game.

"That's our aim, is to stay safe and that has our full focus. Dropping into the bottom four puts everything into perspective, and we know now that the only way to look is up.

"From what I have seen over the past couple of weeks since our last match, I feel very confident about the squad and how we're going to play, and confident about the energy levels - and I am confident we can survive."

"We need to get out of it and that sort of challenge gives you focus, when you know exactly what you have to do.
"I'm still working to add one or two - one to the side and one to the squad and that'd be it. The only movement then would be out."

He said: "If we are to get to the end of the season and be safe for next season, I am pleased with the shape of the squad.

Whilst content with those players at his disposal, it may be that the U's manager does venture into the transfer market again before the transfer window closes.

Joe has had a busy January, signing seven players as he looks to bring together the group of players that can lift the U's out of and away from the bottom four.
