League Two’s form team, Colchester United, will look to make the most of two home games in four days, as they go in search of six league points that would boost their play-off hopes.

Morecambe are the visitors tomorrow for John McGreal’s side, while Danny Cowley’s Lincoln City also visit the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Tuesday night.

McGreal is far too canny to look any further ahead than this afternoon’s game – one he knows will be a tough fixture, despite Morecambe’s bottom six position.

When told his side could potentially break into the top seven should they beat the Shrimps today and Lincoln on Tuesday, McGreal said: “Potentially, yes. But we worry about the points from Saturday first.

“We are not looking anywhere beyond this game. In this league if you turn round, you can get your pockets felt.
