Colchester United v Wycombe Wanderers: old rivalries renewed
PUBLISHED: 16:37 22 September 2017
Colchester United and Wycombe Wanderers have been deadly rivals, ever since the 1991-92 season when the two clubs were vying for promotion into the Football League.
The U’s, managed by Roy McDonough, pipped Martin O’Neill’s Chairboys to the Conference title on goal difference – the U’s doubled their Buckinghamshire opponents that term, including keeper Scott Barrett scoring a dramatic last gasp winner via a long-range punt at Wycombe, almost 26 years to the day (September 28, 1991), in a 2-1 away victory.
So much water has flowed under the bridge since those non-league days, but tomorrow they will renew rivalries at the Community Stadium.
Current U’s boss McGreal said: “We know that there is history between the two clubs, and we know that it is an important fixture for the fans. Furthermore, there have been some good games between the two clubs in recent years.”
