Head Coach Harry Kewell insists his players will have to be brave if they want to overcome Cambridge United tomorrow afternoon at the Checkatrade Stadium, and believes they are.

Kewell was speaking to the press this afternoon and gave his thoughts on facing Shaun Derry's men.

"They need the points as much as we do, we're at home so that gives us that slight advantage so they're going to be cautious," said the boss.

"It's going to be a tough game, they're very compact so they'll be looking for us to make the moves and in football if you want to be brave you have got to make these moves and my players are brave."

Despite losing our first two games, Kewell is confident the side isn't far off where they want to be.

The Australian called on statistics to highlight the performance of the team in the games so far.

"We have created over 33 chances and that's only in three games," he added.

"So for me it's just about getting the ball in the back of the net, and that will come.

"You can dominate a lot of teams and come away with nothing, and then other times you can have just one chance and stick the ball in the net and that's it."

The boss was quizzed by the media on his team selection, and the players pushing for a starting place.

The former Liverpool winger has 25 players to choose from, and they're all giving him something to think about.

"Everyone's pressing, no one is slacking off which is fantastic for myself to have a team that is fighting for every position," said Harry.

"Everyone is putting in a good shift at the moment and it is causing me problems."

Kewell discusses all that and more in the iFollow video above.
