U's boss looking for positive performance at Barrow

9 September 2021

Colchester United boss Hayden Mullins is looking for his side to continue their good work away from home this week as the U's make the trip to Barrow in Sky Bet League Two.

Although the U's lost their last game, a 1-0 defeat at home to Gillingham in the Papa John's Trophy, there were still plenty of positives to take from the game with Mullins' side having the better of the chances. 

It will be the third away league game in a row for Colchester United, with the boss asking for a positive performance from his player in Cumbria on Friday evening. 

"We gave players who hadn't played many minutes an opportunity on Tuesday evening (against Gillingham), and the way they played gives me a bit of a headache for the next team selection. I've got some thinking to do, definitley.

"It's good as a Head Coach when you work from pre-season up until now and you try and get the group into a place where they all understand what you are trying to ask from them. 

"Barrow are a good side, they picked up a good win on Saturday against Oldham and we know it will be a tough test. With us not playing the game last Saturday, we've been thrown into our third away game on the bounce. 

"Our away performances have been pleasing over the last few weeks, and we'll be expecting the same against Barrow. It will be a tough day and a long trip, but we've got an experienced group and they've shown me already that they can cope with it."
