Ward - U's are not far away from first win
John Ward admitted he was disappointed that his Colchester United side had nothing to show for their efforts, following their 1-0 defeat at Brentford.
A late header from Farid El Alagui condemned the U’s to a last-gasp defeat, leaving them without a win in League One this season.
Ward said: “We’re disappointed that we’ve come away with nothing but we have to keep our spirits up.
“They’ll be OK and we have a home game coming up on Saturday (against Doncaster Rovers) where we’ll go out and try and get the result that we’re looking for.
“I think we’re pretty close (to a first win), with the honesty I’ve got with this group of people.
“It’s up to Joe (Dunne) and me to regain the confidence but keep the same attitude towards the team.”
