First away game after 3 consecutive home games, has felt like forever!

Colchester gave us a proper good game at our place earlier in the season, but we've progressed massively since then.

A tough one indeed, but a 1-2 City win for me.

Agard, Freeman

Reckon 2-0 City, reckon we will just have too much to keep us out and once we get one we will get another.

Got a bad feeling about this, no idea why as have been massively confident all season. All points to an away win but think we may struggle!

We were doing ok against MK last night - we were defending well and looked threatening at times going forward in a very even game. Then one lapse at the back minutes before the break let them in and it gave them something to sit on after half-time. With eight men permanently behind the ball, we never really looked like breaking them down at all during the second half.

It's a shame we conceded just before the break as it looked set for 0-0 and would have made that second half a little more open. If we can defend in the same way then we'll have a chance, but I wasn't expecting points this week and I am still expecting that to be proven correct.

Not sure about this one, can see a draw. Hoping he keeps the same side from Saturday, maybe Little could swap with Tavernier but that's all i'd change. Pack was very good last night so hope he keeps his place over Elliott who's been poor recently.

Win, win, win, 0-2. I agree Pack deserves to retain his position.

Can definitely see us losing this one. If Colchester get an early goal, it could be a hammering.

(reverse psychology worked on tuesday so im trying it again!)

Colchester fans do you have any danger men ? Or is this just a gimme for us..... Serious question.....:fish:
Sears was always a good player whenever I seen him play, but obviously I'm living in the past with him being at Colchester.

Can't note many other Colchester players if I am honest with you..

Sears went to Ipswich in January.

Sanchez Watt is easily one of the best wingers in the league when he's on his day but, sadly, his days have been a real rarity and he has been dropped a lot in recent weeks - I don't even think he is in the squad for tomorrow so he won't be anything to worry about. There's a chance Dion Sembie-Ferris could play instead though, and he is rapid and has looked quite threatening in the few sub appearances he's made so far, and he'd be a bit of an unknown entity if he does.

Sammie Szmodics has possibly more energy than any player I have ever seen, he pops up everywhere and would be a threat - but he's injured I think and is out for tomorrow, so another one not to worry about.

That only really leaves Gavin Massey I guess, who can be brilliant on his day with his pace, and he chips in with a few goals. Alex Gilbey should be back in the starting eleven tomorrow in central midfield and he can really dictate games but, although he scored plenty in the youth team, hasn't chipped in with too many goals since he broke through.

To be honest, it's quite depressing thinking this through and realising that Gavin Massey is probably the only real threat to worry about. He's decent, but christ. We're going to lose tomorrow.

Is it true, as Karl Robinson stated today ..... Allegedly Alli was intentionally taken out by your team ?

JET back in for Agard who clearly isn't fully match fit yet, Tavernier in for Little who has looked jaded recently, and bizarrely, Elliot in for Pack, who was one of our best players on Tuesday, and Elliot has been far from his best since he got sent off at Swindon.

Hm..

Yeah not sure I agree with pack missing out, but I suspect that was always the plan... To just give Elliot a rest. If he wasn't the captain i suspect pack would of kept his place. Happy with the team other than that though.

Elliott has been bang average since he got sent off at Swindon. Pack must be wondering what he has to do. He's came into the side numerous times this season and nearly always performed really well, yet is always dropped in the next game

This is what happens when you have a keeper who is barely 6 foot - no command of his area whatsoever.
