Match Preview | Joe Dunne

U's assistant looking to continue good performances

1 February 2022

Colchester United assistant boss, Joe Dunne, is hoping his side can continue from where they left off against Swindon Town in this evening's game.

Emyr Huws struck a dramatic late equaliser for the U's on Saturday afternoon, as the nine-man home side picked up a point against high-flying Swindon Town. 

It was a spirited performance from the U's to get anything from the game after the dismissals of Shamal George and Luke Chambers in the second half, and assistant boss Joe Dunne wants his side to take that into the game against Rochdale. 

"It felt like a win on Saturday, and it would have felt like a defeat for our opponents. But when you've got nine men and the game was as difficult as it was for ninety minutes, it was a great point, and we shouldn't underestimate how hard the team worked for that.

"The fans have been sticking with us and we need that energy. They have been getting us going, and that really showed when we got a couple of corners late on in the last game.

"It was a unique experience not just for me, but for a lot of the players I'm sure getting an equaliser with nine men, and we have to take that into the next game. We live and learn by our experiences and we want to continue that against Rochdale."
