Morecambe Up Next

Long trip north for the U's this weekend

10 January 2020

Colchester United take on Morecambe on Saturday, looking to jump back into the Play-Off positions

John McGreal and his U's squad travel up to the North West coast to take on the Shrimps in League Two.

The Globe Arena will play host for the game between the eighth placed U's, and bottom club Morecambe.

Despite their lowly position, McGreal is expecting his opposition to make it tough to get any points out of the game.

He told the official website: "They have always made it tough for us, and I'm sure they will again on Saturday."

"They may have lost their past three matches, but all three have been competitive and only one goal separated the sides.

"That has also been the case every time we've played them,  seven games and never more than one goal either way, so we know we have to perform well again.

"Looking back at the game last weeked, we actually did play well but just couldn't convert the many chances that we created.

"We need to continue that good build-up play, but be more clinical when chances come our way."
