Ashley Vincent in injury setback

ASHLEY Vincent has suffered a setback in his recovery from a pulled hamstring.

Flying winger Vincent had been hoping to be in contention for a return to the Colchester United first team, around the Christmas and new year period.

The ex-Cheltenham man injured his hamstring during the first half of the U’s 1-0 defeat to Swindon in the FA Cup on December 3.

Having missed nearly three months at the start of the season, due to a knee problem, Vincent had been hoping to get back quickly.

But he is yet to make a comeback for the U’s second string, and is still feeling the effects of the hamstring injury.
