Colchester United Assistant Head Coach Scott Marshall says the team is chomping at the bit to get out and play on Tuesday evening, to give them an opportunity to put Saturday behind them.
The U’s were well-beaten by a resurgent Forest Green Rovers team on Saturday afternoon, but will be looking to turn their fortunes around with the EFL Trophy match against Cambridge United this evening.
Both Colchester and Cambridge will be wanting to get something from the game to keep their tournament hopes alive after both losing in their opening games.
“We’ll reflect and have a look at the details in the [Forest Green] game, and things we can do better. We’re looking forward to the next one, and getting Saturday out of the system as quickly as possible.
“We want to do well in every game and the Cambridge game is no different. It will be a good game against a good Cambridge team, and we’re looking forward to the challenge from that.
“There’s always an idea of who might be involved the games when we are planning ahead, but you’ll always find that there are things that crop up last minute, things happened in the game at the weekend that you have to adjust to. This is no different, and we’ve been assessing it over the last couple of days and we’ll be making sure everybody is okay and ready to give a good account of themselves.
“We’ll use the game a little bit to get the injured players some minutes, with people coming back into the fray. There’s a number of different avenues and things going on in our heads, and it will suit a number to get some minutes in this game.”
