Colchester United boss, John McGreal, is hoping that his side can build on Tuesday night’s first away point of the season, a 2-2 draw at Grimsby, with a first victory on the road at Yeovil this Saturday.
Speaking at this lunchtime’s press conference, following the morning training session at Florence Park, McGreal said: “Having got that first away point, we want to get an away win now.
“I saw a different type of performance from my team on Tuesday, although we didn’t quite manage the win.
“There were a little bit more grit and determination about the team.
“In the previous four away matches, we had tried to go out and play our way, and again we had a great start, which we have managed so often in games this season.
“We got the early goal (Kyel Reid’s fifth minute opener), but we couldn’t keep it for long,” added McGreal.
The U’s boss confirmed that captain Tom Lapslie would return after a one-match suspension, incurred for five bookings, while he was hopeful that striker Brandon Hanlan would shrug off an ongoing groin problem.
Defender Tom Eastman faces a fitness test on a sore hamstring, which caused him to miss the trip to Blundell Park.
