WIN or bust.

That is the final-day scenario for Colchester United at Lincoln City tomorrow if they are to have any hope of clinching a League Two play-off spot – and Brennan Dickenson thinks that can be a positive.

“I think it helps that we know exactly what we need to do,” said the left-sided player, who has started the U’s last two games at left-back.

“We have to win the game and there’s no two ways about it.

“We know what we need to do and hopefully we’ll able to do that.

“The boys are up for it and we’re all confident.

“We’re confident but we’re not getting too overwhelmed by the occasion – we just have to go out there and do what we do best.

“The attitude among the boys is game by game and no matter the magnitude or size of the game, it is what it is and we have to do what we do best.

“It’s exciting and we’re all looking forward to it.

“I think we have the experience in the team to take on that pressure and put on a good performance.

“Our performances have been good of late and we haven’t lost in our last three, so we’re looking forward to a big game.

Lincoln will be celebrating their title win tomorrow, after being crowned League Two champions last month.

It promises to be a party atmosphere at Sincil Bank and Dickenson is hoping to use that to his advantage, to help Colchester claim what could prove to be a precious victory.

“It’ll be a good atmosphere with a lot of noise and as a footballer, you have to take that on and use their energy for yourself,” said Dickenson.

“I feel personally I do that and try and give a positive performance.

“Hopefully we can rise to the occasion and get that win.”

Dickenson has been filling in at left-back following Kane Vincent-Young’s abdominal injury.

The 26-year-old has made his name so far as a winger but has played in the position before for Gillingham, earlier in his career.

“I’m happy to be playing and I think the manager has put his trust in me to play at left-back and I’m happy to do it,” added the former Brighton youngster.

“Hopefully Kane will get better soon but I feel like I’ve played well there.

“I’ve not played so much this season but I feel like when I’ve been called upon, I’ve put in good performances.

“I’m glad I’ve had the three games that I’ve had to get some momentum going into this game, because it is such a big one.

“I feel like playing slightly deeper gives me more space and more view going forward whereas playing left wing you can be very isolated, out wide.

“I feel like I’ve done well the last few games and Frankie (Kent) to my right-hand side has helped me get used to that position again.

“It’s not the easiest thing to jump back into after playing out wide.

“I played at left-back for Gillingham in my second season there – I’m happy to do it and I’m confident to do it.”
