Sky Blues' defender Jack Grimmer say he is not too concerned about City's recent dry patch in front of goal ahead of tomorrows meeting with the U's.
"I am not too worried," said Grimmer.
"I see the players every day in training. I know what they can produce.
"It is very difficult right now. The lads want to score so much that I think they are trying to do things that they would not naturally do and that results in them not scoring at all.
"The pressures are high because we are expected to win games. I am sure that will come soon.
City have the joint best defensive record in the Football League and Grimmer has played his part in that, picking up a PFA League Two Player of the Month award along the way.
"We have let our record slip the last couple of games by conceding two poor goals by our standards.
"Tuesday night was unfortunate for Lee [Burge], but I think he will easily shrug that one off.
"Since he came back he has been incredible and he has pulled off some amazing saves to earn us points that otherwise we might not have got.
"There is a great understanding between Burge and the back four at the moment. I think it helped that Stokes and Willis both knew him well before this season but me and McDonald have been able to slip in seemlessly.
He added: "Colchester are a tough side. I have always known it to be a tough place to go so I am sure it will be no different tomorrow at the Ricoh. We are looking forward to it."
