Sam Walker: Play-offs are still achievable for Colchester United
Colchester United might be on a rotten run of results, but their experienced keeper, Sam Walker, has no doubt that this stuttering season can still be rescued. Walker has had precious little to do during the U’s last couple of matches, and yet John McGreal’s men have still slid to 1-0 defeats, at the hands of lowly Crewe and Barnet, to seriously dent their League Two play-off hopes.
Any chance of a quickfire return to form, and winning ways, has been scuppered by this weekend’s postponement of the scheduled trip to Morecambe, another of the clubs floundering at the wrong end of League Two. But the U’s 26-year-old custodian remains upbeat.
“The mood in the camp is still good,” insisted Walker, who chalked up his 204th senior appearance for the U’s last weekend. “Personally, I come in on a Monday with a positive attitude to crack the week ahead, and the rest of the squad are also like that. We all have a steely determination to put in a good performance in our next match, creating chances and hopefully taking those chances to win the game. There are still plenty of points available for us to get into the play-offs, 33 in all, and I still believe it is more than achievable“.
