Veteran forward Chris Porter says it is hard to understand why inconsistency has crept into our results after we made such a positive start to the season.
Porter returns to his former club, Colchester United, this weekend hoping to end a personal run of 10 games without a goal in all competitions and he says it would be the perfect place to bounce back from last week’s home loss to Accrington Stanley.
Porter, who scored 30 goals in 95 games for the U’s said: “It has been frustrating because we seem to be winning one and then losing one. It is hard to understand why we have been inconsistent because we started the season really well and we were fourth at one stage.
“We know though that on our day we can compete with the best teams in this league and if we can get those two or three wins on the bounce then we would back up there. It is that type of league where everyone is beating everyone.
“We have to become harder to beat again and churn out those results. We are capable of doing it and we are looking to do it, starting at Colchester.
“If you can find that consistency in the second half of the season then you usually end up being promoted or in the play-offs and that is what we want. We want to be up there and I don’t think we are a million miles away.”
