Colchester United boss, John McGreal, insists that his U’s side are “still within touching distance” of the League Two play-offs.

But the U’s really need to beat visiting Stevenage tomorrow (3pm), if they are to reduce the five-point gap between themselves and the top-seven going into the final five games of the campaign.

“We only have a small squad (due to injuries), but we are trying to keep it all lively,” said McGreal following yesterday’s training session at Florence Park, Tiptree.

“We are within touching distance of the play-offs, so let’s enjoy it!

“We haven’t been in this position for a number of years, so the training sessions have been lively and everyone is looking forward to the next few games.

“The Notts County game (3-1 defeat last weekend)has gone. We don’t even talk about that, because that can’t get us promoted. But beating Stevenage can help to get us promoted.”
