Cambridge United centre-back Greg Taylor has told his team mates they need to shake off their poor start to the season.
The 28-year old returned to the starting line-up at the weekend against Colchester after missing a number of games through a muscle injury. his side found themselves on the end of a demoralising 3-0 defeat which leaves them 19th in the table.
Cambridge weren’t terrible in the game, in patches they showed some endeavour and Taylor even had an effort cleared off the line, but it was to no avail. He admitted the manner in which they’re losing games is frustrating.
“I think it’s (the message) just keep going, we’ve just got to keep going,” he said. “We believe there are parts of the games we have been dominating and we’re showing what we can do. Unfortunately, it’s individual mistakes that are changing games.”
“It’s quite frustrating. We have had a lot of individual mistakes that have led to goals at the start of the season, they haven’t been spread out. During games, especially on Saturday, we have dominated at times and looked the more likely to score. “
The U’ host promotion hopefuls Mansfield Town at the Abbey Stadium this weekend.
Cambridge do not look to be a cohesive side and for a second year in a row, they’re punching well below their weight.
Joe Dunne needs results, quickly. His side have looked no better than the one Shaun Derry left last year and if the bad run continues, they could become embroiled in a relegation battle.
