First published in Colchester Utd by

Defiant Joe Dunne is “absolutely confident” he can revive Colchester United’s ailing season.

And the U’s boss has challenged his struggling side to be “coupon-busters” at in-form Bournemouth tomorrow.

The U’s are rated by some bookmakers at 6/1 to win this weekend.

Nevertheless, Dunne believes his U’s side are capable of upsetting the odds.

He said: “Bournemouth must be rubbing their hands about tomorrow, looking at the form table.

“But it could be a coupon buster this weekend because no-one will have us down to win, that’s for sure.

“They’ll be a big X next to Bournemouth on the coupon but we’ve got to go there and upset a few people."

I really really, want a win from Col Utd, but I honestly can't see it. I can't see where the goals will come from.

Bournemouth are one of the inform teams in the league and against the rag-bag side we will have to field today it will be no contest. Bournemouth could inflict on us one of our heaviest defeats ever, where anything less than 5 goals in the against column would seem like a miracle.
