Cousins: cup giantkilling is everyone's nightmare

Gazette: Response - Colchester United goalkeeper Mark Cousins believes they cannot afford to dwell on their FA Cup defeat at Chelmsford. Response - Colchester United goalkeeper Mark Cousins believes they cannot afford to dwell on their FA Cup defeat at Chelmsford.

Mark Cousins admitted Colchester United's shock defeat at hometown club Chelmsford City was a player's worst nightmare.

The U’s were beaten 3-1 by the Blue Square Bet South side, to tumble out of the competition at the first-round stage.

For Chelmsford-born Cousins and his team-mates, it was well and truly a day to forget but the Colchester goalkeeper was determined to remain positive.

Cousins said: “It’s a player’s worst nightmare to come and lose to a non-league team but you have to hold your head up high and get on with it.

“It’s not nice to lose any game, especially a cup game.

“This sort of result but we’ve got strong enough characters in the squad to pick ourselves up.

“We can’t dwell on one game - there’s no point in that.”

Someone is reading lines from a JW book.

You need to dwell on it, and see what was done wrong and point fingers, supporters pay good money to watch good football even if we lost but played well we wouldn't have minded but hardly any of the players turned up especially you Mark. And myself that went to the game was actually embarassed to be a Col U fan.

Yes you should be ashamed of yourself Mark as well as others. To many mistakes by you Mark, trouble is there is nobody pushing you for your place in the side but beware Mark Joe wont keep on putting up with it. But no good feeling sorry for ourselves come on colchester sort out and make county suffer tomorrow night

Mark Cousins you have hit the nail on the head. While I hold you as the only stand out poor performer against Chelmsford, you can't as you say 'dwell on one game'. So providing the result against Notts county is a good one, with a good goalkeeping performance included, you will go along way to re-establishing yourself as a good goalie of a good team in league 1.

I would rather take a win against Notts over Chelmsford all week long. So get that head up for tomorrows real cup match.
