'We need to be better than where we are' - Colchester boss Joe Dunne ahead of Crewe game.

Colchester United manager Joe Dunne believes his team should be higher up the table as they scrap for League One survival. The U's are just two points ahead of the bottom four ahead of their game with Crewe. Only goal difference separates the two clubs, with the U's two places above in 18th.

Speaking ahead of the trip to Gresty Road, Dunne said 'No one's happy to be in the position where we are, and we get to this situation where its still in our hands to avoid relegation. Its not in my DNA to keep hanging on and hanging on. As a group we should be better than where we are'.
