A12 Derby test for McGreal & Co

24 December 2019

Colchester United travel to Leyton Orient on Boxing Day

The U's take on the O's on Thursday, looking to break into the top seven in League Two.

Saturday's vistory over Carlisle United saw John McGreal' side jump back to eighth, just one point off the Play-Offs.

They face a side that won their last fixture, 3-2 at Cambridge, but had been on a run of ten without a victory before that game at the Abbey last weekend.

Head Coach John McGreal is expecting a tough game at the Breyer Group Stadium against the O's.

"They were on an indifferent run of results before the weekend, but we know that every team in this division is capable of beating anyone else.

"We have to do all the good things that have got us the good results in the league recently, and make sure we perform at our top level.

"I'm expecting a big following to come along with us down the A12, and we all want to put on a good show for them."

Please note that the game kicks off at the earlier time of 1pm.
