Colchester United’s new defensive signing, Ryan Inniss, is not expected to figure for a fortnight due to injury.

Inniss was one of five new players signed by the U’s on transfer deadline day on Thursday.

Recruited on loan from Crystal Palace for the season, this will be Inniss’ seventh different loan club. He is yet to make a league appearance for his parent club.

Inniss was not involved during yesterday’s 1-0 defeat at Cambridge United, and the 22-year-old will have to be patient before he finally makes his U’s debut.

But he should be a big player for the U’s during the course of the campaign, in the heart of defence.
