Time To Act

18 November 2016

U's boss wants his team to deliver on Saturday.

Colchester United Head Coach John McGreal says Saturday is the 'time to act' as the U's look to end their winless run in League Two.

The U's boss has seen his players bounce back from Saturday's defeat to Leyton Orient with a positive week's training, but John now wants to see that replicated from 3pm at Huish Park.

"The boys were disappointed with Saturday, that goes without saying," John said on Thursday.

"Last week was a poor performance, but training has been very good this week and we have to make sure we keep our belief and replicate the positive work in training on Saturday.

"I firmly believe we're not that far away, and we have to keep working hard to get our rewards.

"I have had a good career as a player by being positive and had stages like this in my career where you were looking for a win.

"You just have to keep your head down, keep working hard and the right result will come. The boys do work really hard each day, but now is the time to act."

After a bright start to the season, John is keen to get the team firing again and believes that the return of players from injury is starting to help the team's cause.

"I said when I got the job that this is an unbelievable opportunity, and I'm going to work ever so hard to get it right," John added.

"There were times where we were winning and scoring goals and I was thinking this is great by the way, but whilst it's tough now, it's still enjoyable. 

"I understand the fans views that I hear on a Saturday. Last week was our biggest game of the season so far and we havent performed - you can hear those frustrations. 

"But I am confident we can get that result soon, it's just a case of me keeping the faith and being patient, as well as doing the right things."
