Battling midfielder Brendan Wiredu has said his teammates will need to be at their best again for the visit of Stevenage this weekend.
Wiredu is enjoying his most prolific career as a professional footballer, making thirty-nine appearances for Colchester United in all competitions this season.
Being a regular fixture in the starting eleven, Wiredu has seen plenty of action, and has been a key part in the U's upturn in form. The final thing now, the twenty-two-year-old says, is to retain the club's Football League status - and they can go a long way to doing that against Stevenage this weekend.
"There's still so much work to be done, we're not going to be naive in thinking that we are safe. We need to get the job done and get the points on the board, and that's the mentality we have to have going into the next games.
"We don't want any last-minute hiccups, but everyone can see we've been putting points on the board and we're doing well at the moment. The thing that separates the top teams from the bottom teams is consistency, and we need to keep that up.
"We know we have more in the locker. The experienced lads in the changing room don't accept anything that is less than a good standard, and that's what it comes down to. We need that when we're winning and losing, and that's kicked in more since the new management team have come in."
