Dunne sings the praises of goalkeeper Sam Walker
JOE Dunne sang the praises of goalkeeper Sam Walker – despite his blunder at Bramall Lane.
The shot-stopper made an uncharacteristic error, deceived by Harry Maguire’s long-range effort in Saturday’s 1-1 draw.
However, Dunne backed the Chelsea loanee and rates him as one of the best in League One.
“Sam’s a wonderful player and he’s been outstanding for us,” said the Colchester boss.
“He was part of the reason we stayed in the league last season.
“He’ll make mistakes, as we all do.
“He’s not a robot but he’s been magnificent and we won’t dwell on what happened.
“It certainly didn’t stop him in the second half.
“He had a similar situation which he dealt with exceptionally well, so he’s brave and a tough character.”
