U's Head To Exeter

Boss aiming to fend off Grecians

15 March 2019

Colchester United make the long trip to Exeter City on Saturday as they look to push closer to the top three with victory in the south west.

Having missed Harry Pell and Tom Lapslie in recent weeks, Head Coach John McGreal saw Ben Stevenson come off with a groin injury on Tuesday night in the game against Forest Green.

The U's will, however, welcome 16-year-old winger Todd Miller into the squad and he's also joined in the squad by U23s regular Dean Ager, with the 19-year-old named in the first team squad for the first time.

"Dean has trained with the first team a number of times and has done really well," John said.

"He's been out on loan previously and experienced mens' football and we know very much what he's about.

"He has a nice left foot and has a bit of intelligence about how he plays and we really like him."

The U's drew with Exeter earlier in the season at the JobServe Community Stadium, with little to separate the two sides, and now only two places and two points separate them as they come head to head again.

Tickets are on sale on the day at St James Park and we'll also have full match commentary on iFollow.
