Joe Dunne has insisted he will not sacrifice his attacking principles when his Colchester United side lock swords with leaders Wolves tonight.

And he has urged his players to embrace the challenge that awaits them, as the U’s go in search of their first-ever victory at Molineux.

Colchester face a Wolves side who are top of League One and have lost only twice at home all season, conceding only nine times in the process.

But Dunne stressed he will not be sending his troops out to defend - and wants his U’s team to go all out for three points.

Dunne said: “I’m not going to change what I believe in, going to Molineux.

“I can’t bring my players up to face the challenge if I don’t ask them to express themselves and try and do something at the bigger stadiums."
