Exeter City forward Tristan Abrahams is targeting a return to winning ways on the road as the Grecians make the trip to Colchester United on Saturday.
City were beaten in their last away match against Tranmere Rovers which preceded a series of draws on the road, but Tristan believes if the side can replicate the sort of form that saw them go agonisingly close to getting three points against Northampton, then they are capable of winning at the JobServe Community Stadium.
Ahead of the match, the 19-year-old said: “I think we’re due a win. We keep losing out through little mistakes, but if we put them away then we should get a win.
“I haven’t played against them (Colchester) before but from what I’ve seen and heard it’s all positive there.
“They’re a strong side and you have to respect your opponent but, as I say, we need to focus on ourselves again and if we do what we did right in the first half against Northampton then I can’t see why we can’t come away with three points.”
Tristan started the match against Town last weekend and impressed with his tenacious attitude and willing running, but despite City’s efforts they fell to a late equaliser in the last minute of the match.
On the draw, Tristan said: “The feeling was definitely of disappointment. Everyone was frustrated but there was some positivity because we knew that we’d played well and if we cut out the little mistakes then we would get three points against most teams.
“Defensively we look solid, obviously we have to cut out little mistakes and make sure we are always ready to defend when we are going forward.
“Going forward I feel it’s the best we’ve looked in a long while, very positive with everything we did, and we created a few opportunities and probably should have scored more goals as well.”
