Mark Connolly dismissed suggestions the Reds would settle for a draw tomorrow and said he and the side are firmly after all three points.

Like the Head Coach Harry Kewell did 15 minutes before him, Connolly sat down with the press this afternoon to talk about tomorrow's visit from Cambridge United.

The side hasn't made the best of starts but the defender insists he and them team are fully focused on getting a win tomorrow.

"We can't be going into a game especially at home looking to get just one point" Connolly told the press.

"We really do go out to win every game, like we did at Cheltenham and like we did at Port Vale, and we'll go to win tomorrow."

The Reds seek out their first win of the season, after losing to both Port Vale and Cheltenham.

Connolly believes the team is getting there but they need to be more consistent.

"We need to be consistent, we can't start a game slowly and can't be 1-0 or 2-0 down in the first half and then fighting to come back in the second half, which we have done.

"It's the opposite to last year so I think we need to find that balance and us as players it's not really physical, it's more the mental side where we've got to be switched on."
