Colchester United boss Joe Dunne has revealed this morning that star winger Sanchez Watt is back in the squad for this Saturday’s trip to Oldham Athletic.

It is just the sort of news that the Essex club needed, coming in the wake of last weekend’s dismal 4-0 home flop to Notts County.

Watt has missed the bulk of this season, since his high-profile summer move from Arsenal, due to injury.

The 22-year-old has suffered several knock-backs in his desperate quest to return to match fitness, but he has now been deemed fit enough to make the trip to Greater Manchester.

Watt looks sure to be on the bench at Boundary Park.
