Samuel will give U's "different dimension", says Dunne
Joe Dunne believes new signing Dominic Samuel will give his goal-shy Colchester United side a "different dimension" in attack.
The teenager has signed for the U's on a month's loan from Premier League side Reading.
Dunne said: “Dominic’s an England under-19 international and he’ll give us a different dimension at the top.
“He’s got energy and speed and he’s a very highly thought of young player at Reading.
“Reading have a great track record of producing good young players who have done well.
“He’s already made his first-team debut for them and he’ll add a bit of freshness to the attack.
“We’re pleased with the way that we’ve been getting into the final third.
“We just need to finish it off and be a bit more resilient at the back.
“I’m a great believer in taking risks now and again.
“He’s a youngster but they have to get their chance somewhere.
“Dominic’s a player who’s got a lot of potential and he’s represented England, which isn’t easy.
“He will give us energy and enthusiasm and I’m pretty confident we’ll get him into the 18-yard box with the pace and skill in our team."
