Dunne delighted with U's win
Joe Dunne said he was delighted with his players after they ended their nine-game losing run with a 2-0 win over Walsall this afternoon.
Dunne felt the U's deserved their win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, given to them thanks to late goals from Jabo Ibehre and Freddie Sears.
Dunne said: “I thought it was a well deserved win, especially on our second half performance.
“We had to be very competitive, in terms of the game plan.
“It wasn’t a great game, in terms of style or football.
“But when you are where we are you have to dig in and I thought it was a really good performance.
“When we spoke at half-time we said that we were in the game and we felt we could go on and win in and that’s what we did.
“We kind of played like an away team in the first half.
“That was based on how things were going but David (Wright) sat in front of our back four and did exceptionally well – I thought that he had a great debut."
