Star Player

Michael Collins put an assured shift in the centre of the park.

Michael Appleton has now probably realised that its not all about pretty football in league 2 that wins matches.

The U`s played the better football but could not prevent another loss. Yes you can say this decision went against you, but sometimes you have to dig in and put teams to bed without playing nice passing football.

3 straight losses for the yellows means the U`s now either to play catch up or need to get to the magic 50 points to ensure league football in 15/16.

With a tough couple of matches coming up things are not becoming easier for the U`s squad.
