Dartford Next Up For U's

Short trip for McGreal and Co's next test

20 July 2018

Colchester United continue their pre-season with a trip to Dartford

The U's take on the National League South side on Saturday afternoon, with exactly two weeks until the season itself starts.

On Tuesday, the U's had a tough test against Dagenham & Redbridge, and Head Coach John McGreal is hoping that Saturday's encounter also asks questions of his squad.

"The game against the Daggers was as close to a league game as I've seen in a pre-season friendly for a good while. 

"There was a good pace to the game, and both teams were giving it as good as they got when any tackles needed to be made.

"It was a good step-up from the previous games and the players had to come up with answers to questions they weren't asked this pre-season before Tuesday.

"I'm expecting another test for them on Saturday at Dartford and I'm sure they'll have to find solutions to problems again."

"We are getting nearer and nearer to the start of the league season - so on Saturday we need to be close to the levels we'll need in those games."
