Colchester United boss, John McGreal, has declared tomorrow afternoon’s clash with leaders Luton as “a great game for the fans.”

The U’s last four home games of the season are all against promotion-chasing sides, starting with table-toppers Luton, who are only ahead of Accrington Stanley on goal difference, having played two games more.

“Luton have been a top-three side all season, and they always bring a great following with them,” explained McGreal.

“There should be a good atmosphere, generated by our fans as well. It’s a great game for the fans.”
