Mousinho: We have shock element

Graham Westley has overseen a radical summer overhaul at

Deepdale and all 10 outfield players were North End debutants in

Monday night’s Capital One Cup victory over Huddersfield.

Colchester are up first in npower League One on Saturday and

Mousinho hopes the club can reap the benefits of a fresh and

revitalised squad following a disappointing campaign last time

around.

“I don’t think too many teams know what to expect from us,” he

said. “I’m not sure too many of the fans knew what to expect

[against Huddersfield].

“It might work in our favour. At the end of the day, teams will

be able to look at us after a few games.

“Ten Preston debutants the other night tells you how much things

have changed here over the past three months. That’s going to work

in our favour and we’ve got to work hard to make sure that it

does.”
