COLCHESTER United boss Geraint Williams wants to send U's old boys Wayne Brown and Richard Garcia packing, without any points, following today's home clash with Hull City.

Defensive lynch-pin Brown and talented front-runner Garcia both left Layer Road to join the Tigers last summer, and both are set to play against their old club this afternoon.

“We've said farewell to a lot of players at this club, and welcomed in many new ones,” explained Williams.

“Both Wayne (Brown) and Richard (Garcia) gave good service to Colchester, but I still want to see them leave without any points. I'll be wishing them all the best, but only after the game.

“We know that we have to sort out our home form, but we are taking nothing for granted against Hull.”
