Gaffer on U's

16 August 2013

David Weir has warned the Blades not to underestimate Joe Dunne's Colchester United side at the weekend.


Speaking ahead of Saturday's clash against the U's, Weir remarked: "There are no easy games in this division, whether that is at home or away, but we have to utilise Bramall Lane and our supporters.


"Saturday will be a tough game. Colchester will come here determined to continue their excellent start in the league.


"You only have to look at their squad to see they have players with a lot of potential who have moved to for first-team football from top Premiership clubs. They also have some experienced League One performers and, no doubt, they will think they can hurt us in certain areas.


"What I am focusing on is working on aspects of our play and identifying areas that will put Colchester on the back foot and allow us to gain the upper hand.


"We know we will have to be at our best to win the game, but the confidence amongst the squad hasn't deteriorated because of the loss at Brentford and come 3pm on Saturday we will be raring to go again."
