Colchester United have switched their weekly press conference from the club’s training ground, at Florence Park, Tiptree, to the stadium this lunchtime.

Speculation has been rife surrounding the future of U’s manager Tony Humes, following Tuesday night’s 3-2 home defeat by Crewe.

After the match, Humes accused a section of the U’s supporters for wanting “the team to fail.”

It now seems that Humes will either be publically backed, or sacked, by the club.

All will be revealed this lunchtime in terms of Humes’ future, in the build-up to this weekend’s trip to Burton.
