The U’s slithered into the relegation zone, after losing 2-1 at home to Scunthorpe United this afternoon.

Goals either side of half-time from Jimmy Ryan and Karl Hawley enabled the Iron to leapfrog the U’s, who replied through a 59th minute goal from Freddie Sears.

The U’s have now lost their last nine games, since a 2-0 home win over Bury on November 17.

After the game, Dunne said: “The fans have been magnificent again, but I just need to consider my position now.

“I just need to speak to the chairman (Robbie Cowling).

“He has been very supportive of me. I know what I want to try and do with the club, but I love this club too much to see it suffer like it is at the moment.

“There are many solutions to problems, but I am man enough to know that we are not in a good position at the moment.

“Solutions may be another voice. I just need to speak to the chairman and see, although he won’t like me saying this.

“I am a fighter, but I don’t want to keep seeing us lose, and I don’t want us to be where we are,” added Dunne.
