Pre-Match Thread Colchester Utd vs Southend Utd CheckaTrade Trophy

Tuesday is coming and with it our away group game against the North Essex chaps at the Airfix in the CheckaTrade Trophy. I'll probably watch it on iFollow but my appetite for this game isn't huge even though it's Col Ewe.

A lot of the normal banter has already been done on the CheckaTrade thread but I suppose as it's a 'FirstTeam' game it deserves it's own thread. Maybe a chance for Dru to continue his fitness program and young Bishop to have a run out, or maybe even Teddy. I don't know whether Lennon is ready for game time, but if JW has done his hamstring then we may need Mr Lennon earlier than we thought. Whilst my enthusiasm is a bit jaded I still hope we win convincingly just to make the point of only 'One Team in Essex'

Bung your team/game opinions down here if you can be arsed.
