Boxing Day celebrations to continue for the Super U's in West Sussex 23:03 - Dec 25 with 500 viewsdurham_exile

JM takes his promotion hunting Super U’s to the Checkatrade Stadium to do battle with HK, better known as Harry Kewell and his Crawley charges. Now make no mistake the Reds have just managed something that we have failed to do in successive seasons and that is to win at the Crown Ground. At 3-0 they were coasting and eventually won 3-2 after a rally from the home team, but take nothing away, it was an impressive victory.

Additionally, we have failed to win at Crawley with 3 defeats and 2 draws in our previous meetings. Despite this Colchester must not only be favourites to prevail on Boxing Day (after all we are a form team at present) but also if results go our way we could enter the top three places, which would be quite an achievement.

Colchester remain outside the top seven places with 36 points from 23 games, an improvement is required for the second half of the season if we are to achieve 82 points, which will be required to achieve a place in the top three. Crawley have 27 points from 23 games and sit in 17th place.

I read today that stats compiled for Boxing Day results show Colchester well down the table out of the 92 League Clubs with only 16 wins from 54 games since their formation. Stats however are there to be challenged and our recent away form suggest we are capable of winning the match to maintain our credible promotion challenge.

JM will be looking to maintain his successful team selection which has been largely unchanged for the last few matches. JM has a decision to make about Ryan Inniss and Kurtis Guthrie, but I would caution about rushing either player back too soon. Both should figure on the bench if deemed fit. I would like to see Guthrie back to play some part against Chesterfield on Saturday.

JM may opt to start 4,3,3 with the following players:

Walker

Jackson Eastman Kent Vincent-Young

Lapslie Comley Reid

Szmodics Mandron Wright

Subs:
Gilmartin Inniss James Murray Hanlan Slater Guthrie

The weather tomorrow at Crawley is likely to be 8-degrees Celsius, but wet with almost 100% precipitation. It will be a question of who wants it more in the conditions.

JM will have to effect change to his playing personnel at some stage with a punishing Christmas/New Year schedule, but Crawley, Chesterfield and Cambridge are winnable games.

Safe journey for the travelling faithful, enjoy the game and let us celebrate another away victory at 4.50pm on Boxing Day.

Crewe have gone 2-0 up at Chesterfield, our next opponents.

Mandron is looking dangerous and there should be further Super U's goals today

Good omen for Saturday Peter?
Could you finally see U's away win or are you a jinx? Saturday will see the definitive answer.

Unless the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune intervene, I think I'll be at Chesterfield too - will look out for you chaps.

In other news, in a moment of last minute inspiration, I changed my U'sual prediction from a spot-on 2-0 with Mandron to a 3-1 with Mandron - gutted :-(

Wessex will look out for you at Chez Vegas.

Incredibly I had Colchester 2-0 with Mandron to score first.

Just watched the TV highlights and how much does the Chuckaturd trophy remind everyone of Layer Road?

I'll be at Chessie, looking out for you all.

Nothing like it when actually there Gerry. It's horrible unless you win.

The away seated area is temporary seating under a canvass roof. The away standing area is six concrete steps under a flat tin roof, which has all the ambiance of a lorry container. Similar at the home end. The home main stand is typically non-league (reminds me of Kidderminster's Aggborough). We silenced the home crowd inside five minutes (not difficult as there were only 1600 of them and 375 of us).

The only redeeming feature, THE best Cornish Pasties ever and a fantastic supporter's bar that made us very welcome.

At Chesterfield, we will be assembling in the 'Derby Tup' a fine real ale establishment.
