Caretaker manager Joe Dunne refused to criticise his Colchester United players following the U’s defeat to Leeds United.

In a tough couple of weeks off the field – with the departure of boss Paul Lambert + skipper Dean Hammond – the U’s players have been a credit to the club with a number of battling performances.

‘The extreme pressure we have come under in the last couple of weeks has taken its toll in the last two games. I have no criticism of the players though, they have been phenomenal,’ Dunne told the EADT after the U’s 2-1 home loss.

Dunne is set to take charge of his last U’s game on Tuesday night, away to Gillingham, with a new manager set to be in place for next weekend’s tough trip to Southampton.

He added: ‘Unfortunately we just came up short today. We’re talking inches and millimeters in the last couple of games but I’m pretty confident we can turn the corner.’

  • Nice words and good to see him behind the players, but no offence to JD, if he’s not going to be the manager, I’d rather he was replaced pretty soon for the next person!

  • Yeah, he should, and will, still have some position with the club but we need the new man in! Up the U’s!
