Colchester manager John Ward has called on his side to embark upon another unbeaten run.
The Us were beaten in the league for the first time this season when they crashed 3-0 at home to fellow promotion chasers Huddersfield on Saturday.
They face a tough trip to Oldham next weekend and Ward is anticipating a positive response.
"That's our first defeat in 13 league games and I've said to the boys that if carry on losing one in 13 then we'll be okay," he said.
"Now we've got to make sure we bounce back."
