Colchester United boss, John McGreal, admits that his side’s strong defence will be seriously tested by Notts County’s dangerous front-men at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
The U’s have not conceded two goals in a match for 11 weeks, since recording a 2-2 draw at Port Vale on January 27. But League Two’s sixth tightest defence (just 46 goals leaked in 42 league matches) will be stretched by the division’s joint fourth highest scorers – the Magpies have bagged 63 goals.
“Defensively, we will have to be strong,” admitted McGreal.
“The boys will be tested at the back by Notts County’s three strikers. It’s a big test for us.
“They still have a chance of getting into the top three, because it’s very tight up there.

“Beating Coventry (2-1 at home) last weekend will have given them a lift, and they have a lot of experience up top in Jon Stead, Jonathan Forte and Shola Ameobi.”
