Stick Together

4 February 2016

Manager ready to kick on after cup excitement.

"We need to start winning, we all know it - players, staff and fans," Kevin said on Thursday.

Backed by a strong travelling contingent, the U's will look to grab that elusive league win and kick start their quest for survival over the next three months.

Having taken the positives out of last weekend's FA Cup game against Tottenham, U's boss Kevin Keen is itching to get back to league action when the team take on Essex rivals Southend United this Saturday.

"Yes, there is a gap to the teams above us, but there are also still a considerable amount of games.

"There are eighteen games left and I am sure that the performances will eventually turn into results."

The second Essex derby brings Kevin quickly back to his first game in charge, where the Shrimpers took the honours in a 2-0 win on Boxing Day.

And the U's manager is keen to grab his first victory and take the three points when the team go to Roots Hall on Saturday.

"I was reflecting on that game earlier today," he said.

"It was six weeks ago and we've not picked up the win that we've deserved, whereas Southend have done well after a couple of defeats after playing us.

"It will be a tough game due to it being a derby, and it will be a tough game due to them chasing the play-off spots.
"But we have been getting ourselves ready this week and we know we've got to go there to fight and try and get the right result.

"You can't magic luck or a stronger mentality straight away, you just need to work hard on the training pitch, in meeting rooms and then ensure that you deliver on a Saturday when the whistle goes."

"The main things in my eyes are working hard and sticking together.
