Hayden Mullins is happy to have had a free week with the Colchester United players in order to get his messages across ahead of this weekend's home game against Harrogate Town.
It has been a tough few weeks for Colchester United and Hayden Mullins with two successive 2-0 defeats, at home to Salford City and then away at Tranmere Rovers.
But with the games coming thick and fast over the next couple of weeks for the U's, Mullins has said that this will be a good chance for his players to score some goals and get some points on the board.
"It's been good to have a free week to really get back to work. We needed to put the result from Friday night behind us, but the work rate and the endeavour from the last game I was quite pleased with. We have to give them credit, and I think they'll be right up there.
"It goes without saying that we are all wanting to do well in the league. It's a tough league with different challeneges every week. You seem to find teams putting runs together in fits and spurts, and then you might have one that is always up there.
"We want to find consistency, that has to start on Saturday. Harrogate are a good side, they play with a good tempo and seem very settled, but we want to put together our good work this week against them.
"We need to make our home a place where we feel comfortable in attacking teams. We have done that at times - against Northampton we should have got a result, and we kept pushing against Mansfield and got our rewards. Salford was the only blip for me.
"Let's turn a nice positive result in on Saturday and it sets us up well for the next game."
