After getting their second win of the season last weekend, U's boss Hayden Mullins has challenged his players to claim a first home victory at the JobServe Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
It was a hard fought, but deserved victory for the U's on the road last weekend, with a 3-2 win at Barrow. The three points means that the U's are unbeaten on the road this season with a record of two wins and two draws away from home.
This weekend's game gives Colchester United a chance to get the first home victory of the season in the third league game at the JobServe Community Stadium. It will have been just over a month, with the last match coming in mid August when Freddie Sears snatched a last minute point.
U's Head Coach has challenged his players to get the first home win of the season, but is still wary of the threat of a resilient Crawley Town side.
"It's worked out that we have had three away trips on the spin in the league now, and it could have gone another way for us, but fortunately it's worked out okay. I think we've done well in the three games we've had, but it's definitely nice to come back and have a home game. It's one for us to really look forward to in front of our fans.
"I think we owe them a performance really. The Mansfield game we did well coming back into in the second half but we didn't start very well. We owe the fans a performance and will be looking to get it right on Saturday.
"Crawley can pose a different threat to what we have seen this season, they will work really hard and as an organised team. They've lined up with a 4-4-2 in most games, or a 4-5-1 like last weekend, but they will be a tough test for us."
