Match Preview | Wayne Brown

Points still to play for as Walsall head to the JCS

29 April 2022

Wayne Brown is after a strong finish to the 2021/22 season.

Colchester United have picked up eighteen points in the past ten matches, but Interim Head Coach Wayne Brown wants more.

The U's head up to the North East next weekend to take on Hartlepool United on the final day of the season, but it's Walsall first at the JobServe Community Stadium this Saturday.

Over recent weeks, both sides have pulled themselves clear of any relegation threat, but Brown is looking to finish higher than both his next two opponents.

He told the official website and the local press: "The incentive is always three points. It just works out at this stage of the season when we're playing Walsall that if we beat them and beat Hartlepool, we'll finish above them both."

"That has got to be the aim for us over these last two matches. We'll keep striving and pushing, that's what we need to do - these two fixtures won't be any different."

Six of those last eighteen points have come in the past two matches, with Brown keen to keep up the good work.

"What's pleased me the most is our performances. We've said all along, especially when we weren't getting the results, that performances go a long, long way.

"If we can keep the consistency of performance to a level, then ultimately we'll stand a better chance of getting points on the board.

"I fully believe we deserved the points against Newport County, a lot of work went into our shape and there was a lot to build on after the Bradford game. 

"We scored five goals, conceded only one and got all six points - so it was a very good few days for us."

Don't forget that following the final whistle on Saturday, the players will be returning to the pitch for the end of season awards, and will also be walking around the pitch to thank the U's fans for their support across the season.

And you can still get a ticket for the game - head to to purchase.
