Colchester boss Adrian Boothroyd admits he has got his hunger back after watching his new side battle for a point at Southampton on Saturday.
The Us played for almost an hour with 10 men after Kem Izzet`s red card in Boothroyd`s first game in charge, but held out for a goalless draw to frustrate Alan Pardew`s Saints.
The former Watford boss said: "To go to a place like that and get a point feels like a win to me."
He added: "When the whistle went I thought `this could be the start of something really big`.
"I have always been the underdog where my teams punch above their weight and I think we can do that here as well.
"It`s always good to prove people wrong and after a nice break I`ve got the hunger for it again."
