Scunthorpe Test Up Next

U's on the road for latest league clash

13 December 2019

Colchester United travel to Scunthorpe United this weekend, looking to push into the Play-Off positions.

John McGreal and his U's squad are taking on a form side in Scunthorpe, who have won their last five fixtures in all competitions.

After a poor start, they have only been beaten twice in fourteen matches and the U's Head Coach is expecting it to be a tough examination for his side.

"Last week, we faced a side that had found a new league tough at the beginning but had turned things around and we've got the same this week.

"Scunthorpe initially struggled to get to grips with things after relegation from League One in the summer, but Paul,(Hurst), has done a great job in turning their form around and they have been one of the top sides in recent weeks.

"We'll obviously be going up there looking to win a game of football, but we will cetainly have to perform very well to do that.

"They're a decent side in decent form - but so are we so I'm expecting a tight match again."
