Robins Up Next

U's on the road to Cheltenham this weekend

22 November 2019

Colchester United face Cheltenham Town on Saturday

John McGreal and the U's are back in League Two action, as they take on The Robins at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

With the U's having a break on the international weekend, due to Like Gambin, Brandon Comley and Callum Harriott's call-ups, it has been three weeks since the last league encounter.

That was the 3-2 victory at Mansfield Town at the beginning of November, taking the U's to eighth and a point off the Play-Off places.

Without a league match last weekend, that gap grew to two points and the U's dropped to tenth place in the table.

Cheltenham Town are in the third of those Play-Off places, in sixth, and McGreal is expecting a tough test against one of the surprise sides of the division.

"Since they got promoted into the league a few seasons ago, Cheltenham have finished mid-table so Michael and Russell have done a great job this season so far.

"They have been in and around it all season after a good start, we had a slow start but have picked things up and I'm sure it'll be a tough match for both sides. 

"We've got the three lads back from international duty and competition for places across the pitch is strong."
