Colchester United boss John McGreal would love to go with the ‘same team’ at Chesterfield

Colchester United have a few bumps and bruises, ahead of tomorrow’s away test at Chesterfield, although boss John McGreal would love to name an unchanged side for the fourth successive match.

Frankie Kent, Kane Vincent-Young and Kyel Reid are among those players nursing niggling injuries, but it would be no surprise if McGreal manages to select the same starting XI which has so far notched away wins at Swindon and Crawley, and secured a 1-1 home draw against Port Vale.

“It would be great if we could go with the same team,” insisted McGreal.

“But we do have one or two knocks at the minute. Also we have to think about the fact that we have two games in three days (home match against Cambridge United on New Year’s Day).

“We will see how the players have recovered, and we need to keep them fresh, so there is food for thought.”
