Colchester United manager, Joe Dunne, revealed this morning that Drey Wright would be out for four-to-six weeks following yesterday’s knee operation.
Winger Wright had not featured for the last four weeks, due to an ongoing knee problem.
Speaking at this morning’s press conference, ahead of Saturday’s visit of Walsall, Dunne confirmed: “Drey has had exploratory knee surgery and has had his cartilage repaired.
“The good news is that it was pretty straightforward with no complications.
“Drey should get back relatively fit after a straightforward rehabilitation programme.

“That’s good news for everyone,” added Dunne.
