All To Play For

9 February 2015

Massey knows there's plenty of points still to chase.

Colchester United wide man Gavin Massey, who played the full 90 minutes in the 3-2 defeat against Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, believes his team-mates will keep pushing hard to escape the bottom four in the coming weeks.

Despite the disappointing defeat against fellow strugglers at home, Massey, remained upbeat and insisted that there were still many points to play for this season.

He said: "It felt like we were in control after going into the break, we got the goal and knew what we had to do in the second half.

"Unfortunately we conceded three sloppy goals which cost us and, even though we got one back at the end, it just wasn't meant to be."

The forward had few openings throughout the game and admitted that Crewe's tactics didn't help him.

Massey added: "It was difficult because usually when teams come here, they can sometimes sit back and we can take it to them, but the spaces weren't really opening up for us today and when they did, we were only able to create a couple of opportunities."

However, despite the result, he claimed that everyone at the club is positive about moving forward from this game and that there is still a long way to go in the season.

"We've now got lots of big games coming up, starting on Tuesday. I think it is good to just get straight into the next one now," he added.

"Sheffield United are next and that is going to be really tough but we have shown at Bradford that we can do something away from home and are hoping that we can continue this."

With six goals to his name this season, Massey, was quick to point out that this league will go down to the wire.

“It’s tight, and it will be it will be like that until the final week of the season. There are lots of points to play for so we are not going to panic. 

“Obviously we are disappointed today but we are confident that we will we turn things around.”
