Colchester defender Michael Rose is determined to improve after coming under fire from a section of the club's supporters.
The 29-year-old has been disappointed with his form following his summer move from Swindon, particularly in the U's last home game, a 2-0 defeat to Charlton.
"I'll take that on the chin and move on and it's up to me to prove to the gaffer and prove to the fans that I should be playing," he told the Daily Gazette.
"There was no hiding from the fact - there were quite a few people here watching it and it was shown on Sky Sports. I'm not the type of person to go into my shell or hide.
"It's down to me now and I won't shy away from the ball.
"I'll just move on and wait for the next game to come along."
