U's boss wants players to battle back.
The players had clear the air talks after the game against Rochdale last week and Tony believes his side are now ready to attack the next set of League One fixtures.
The U's go to the West Country on the back of a five game losing streak in League One, a run that has left them in 23rd in the table and with work to do to lift themselves back out of the bottom four.
Colchester United boss Tony Humes is looking for a united front from his players as they head to Yeovil Town on Saturday.
And Tony is looking for his leaders to shine through on the pitch.
The U's recently added Kaspars Gorkss to the squad to provide additional experience in the ranks and the Latvian has quickly settled into the group.
"To be open and honest is the right way, and it's good that we were able to talk it through last week."
"We have to make sure we stick together. The squad is tight knit one and we all want to make sure that they remain that way.
"We have asked the players to work hard, compete and believe in their ability.
Ahead of the game at Huish Park, he said: "We need to start picking up points.
He said: "You need your strong characters to come through, to help others around them who might not be able to deal with it quite so well. "
