The Wright approach demanded by Colchester United midfielder

David Wright believes that Peterborough United’s trip to Wembley, last Sunday, might work in the U’s favour this evening.

Posh beat Chesterfield 3-1 in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final, in front of 20,000 of their own supporters, and so will go into tonight’s game on a high.

However, that match will have taken a little bit out of the sixth-placed Posh, who have also suffered a dip in league form of late with back-to-back defeats at the hands of promotion rivals Rotherham and Preston.

“It might work in our favour, Peterborough having played on Sunday, but we need to concentrate on us, and make sure we perform collectively and individually,” explained U’s midfielder Wright.

“We certainly have enough quality to cause Peterborough problems.

“It would be nice to get a bit of luck in front of goal.

“At Notts County, just an inch to the right or an inch to the left (with reference to Freddie Sears hitting the post) and the game would have been turned on its head.

“Momentum would then have been with us. But we will keep it going, and look to get a positive result at Peterborough.”

The U’s have taken just one point from their last three matches, to slip to within three points of the drop zone.
