Wright return for crunch game

DAVID Wright has been passed fit to return to the Colchester United squad for this weekend’s key game at Carlisle.
The U’s need a point to be sure of avoiding relegation to League Two, on what promises to be a very nervous final day of the season.
Wright was knocked unconscious and stretchered off the pitch during the 3-1 defeat at Notts County, and the resulting concussion forced him to miss the following two games, a 2-0 home defeat to MK Dons and a goalless draw against Shrewsbury.
Former Ipswich Town stalwart Wright could well go straight into the starting XI, as manager Joe Dunne looks to experience to get the result that the club so badly needs.
However, another of the U’s experienced players, striker Clinton Morrison, has not trained this week due to a quad injury and is not likely to feature.

Centre-half Josh Thompson is the other definite absentee, due to a sore hamstring.
