Match Preview | Hayden Mullins

U's boss looking forward to get his squad back playing games

19 November 2021

Colchester United boss, Hayden Mullins, has said his side have used the international break well to prepare for this weekend's game against Stevenage.

The U's were due to play against table-topping Forest Green Rovers last Saturday, but with the call ups for Tommy Smith, Armando Dobra and Sylvester Jasper, the game was postponed until 21st December. 

But with the game against Stevenage now in full focus, the U's boss is looking forward to getting back underway and building on the momentum built up from the previous three games. 

Colchester United will head to managerless-Stevenage, with the hosts sitting three points and two places behind them, with Hayden aware of the dangers that the Hertfordshire side possess. 

"We'd have definitely preferred the game, coming off two decent results, and roll into Saturday. It would have been a tough game, but the break gave us time to work on some bits and get the players a little bit more fresh. 

"They had a bit of downtime over the weekend, to keep them nice and fresh for this week. 

"You never know what's coming with the caretaker this weekend. There's always that bounce they might have from a new manager walk in the door, but I went to see them in the FA Cup on Tuesday so we have an idea of how they might go. 

"We need to really concentrate on what we are doing as a team, and go there and do a good job on them, but they'll be looking to try and follow it up on Saturday."
