Sincil Bank Awaits On Final Day

U's seek crucial win against Imps

3 May 2019

Colchester United go to League Two Champions Lincoln City on the final day of the season, knowing they need a win at Sincil Bank to move into the play-off spots by the time the final whistle blows.

The U's are chasing down Newport who currently occupy seventh spot, and they will also need to leapfrog Exeter City during the ninety minutes of the final weekend of the league season.

John McGreal's men have picked up seven points in their last three games to give themselves a chance of getting into the top seven, and the Head Coach is looking forward to trying to complete a league double over the Imps.

"We know we have to win a game of football – Lincoln will be there to spoil the party but also enjoy their party, because they’ve won the league.

"It’ll be a good occasion for them and we’re hoping it will be a good occasion for us.

"It’s great that the fans are coming in numbers and it was great against MK. The bond between the players and the fans is there for all to see and we need to continue that, if we want to be successful.

"We’ve not been too bad on our travels and if we win, it’ll be the best away record we’ve had for a number of years which is another little challenge we set ourselves."

Tickets for the game are now off sale to U's fans, but we will be backed by around 700 supporters at Sincil Bank on the final day.

See you there!
