Prenton Park hosts the super U's today in Season Finale 12:10 - May 8 with 706 viewsdurham_exile

After last weekend’s deserved victory over Play Off hopefuls Salford City and the 15th Anniversary of that momentous day at Huish Park Yeovil, the Super U’s bow out at Prenton Park against a Tranmere team still needing a single point to guarantee a Play Off berth. Defeat for Keith Hill’s team is not on his agenda and that means that the U’s are in for a tough afternoon, but three wins out of four has given Colchester new belief and I am confident that we can win on the Wirral.

Sadly, once again we cannot attend the game and so iFollow will be our salvation. A pity because they do a great Fanzine, and it is always a good day out on the Wirral.

Of course, it was only March when we drew 2-2 in a game at the JSCS that frankly we should have won and in the end were happy to take a point. Pell and Wiredu were the scorers that day.

Table:

Cheltenham 45 79 Promoted
Cambridge 45 77
Bolton 45 76
Morecambe 45 75
Newport 45 72
Tranmere 45 72
FGR 45 70
Exeter 45 69
Salford 45 68

COL U 45 50
Barrow 45 49
Scunny 45 48
Southend 45 44 Relegated
Grimsby 45 43 Relegated

Selected Matches today

Cambridge v Grimsby (A win for the Mariners could cost Cambridge automatic promotion)
Cheltenham v Walsall (Cheltenham win gives them the Championship)
Crawley v Bolton (Bolton win promotes them automatically)
Exeter v Barrow (Exeter win gives them a chance at the play offs)
Morecambe v Bradford (Morecambe win could give them automatic promotion)
Oldham v FGR (FGR win, and they have a place in the play offs)
Salford v Orient (Salford must win and hope results go their way)
Southend v Newport (Newport need a point to guarantee a play off berth)

HM and PT are unlikely to make many changes. Pell and Harriott are unavailable again for personal reasons.

I would play 4,4,2:

George

Welch-Hayes Eastman Smith Clampin

Bohui Chilvers Stevenson Wiredu

Folivi Nouble

Subs

Gerken Poku Lapslie Sowunmi Senior Brown Tchamadeu

For the first time in weeks Colchester can play with total ease and confidence knowing that they are safe for another season. Let us hope the team gives the supporters something to remember and win on the Wirral today to give the 53 points that I said we would need to be safe. In the event 48 points was enough but league position will swell the coffers albeit slightly!

We will have finished 25-point shy of a play off position in what has been a shocking season but let us go out on a high. A clean sheet and a solitary goal from improving Josh Bohui to give us a second away win.

Weather today north of the Blue Wall in Durham is shocking with snow and sleet showers but Tranmere will have an incredible 16 degrees Celsius and light rain.

Get Scott Quigley signed up!

Enjoy the game.

Stevenson now not available, so three ( together with Harriet and Pell ) gone AWOL . Despite are inconsistencies this season, we owe it to other clubs to fulfil fixtures.
Hope the Chairman is happy with the reasons, but if the boot was on the other foot regards getting a result for survival ....
No shows, sorry but a lack of integrity by the club, whatever the results there and elsewhere.

Another player who’s been told he won’t be here next season perhaps. Whilst we do need to respect the fixture I think we’re also within our rights to give fringe players some game time especially those who might be in the starting XI come August.

We don't know what's going on with Pell and Harriott, nor now possible Stevenson, but you can't deny that's pretty much our strongest line-up of those who are left? Yes, the bench is very young, but hopefully they won't be called upon until the result doesn't really matter.

Always been a big Stevenson fan but he’s never really regained the form he showed whilst on loan here. He’s not been great this season, largely inconsistent, and I’m not sure he’s strong enough for League Two football. Would probably look a better player a division or two above.

Agreed. As I said on another thread, Pell's probably rejoining Cheltenham - he's hinted at it - & it's a LG above where our players always seem to do better than with us. Harriott, ditto and if Stevenson (our highest paid) joined a LG 1 side it would all fit. I would not miss the three of them who underwhelm, are often injured and have not offered as much as they did previously.

...and that's all that counts for the U's.

Much stronger second half, helped no doubt by Tranmere sitting deeper and deeper to hold on to the point they needed, and they nearly lost it too.

At least finishing 20th is better than it looked likely two months ago so well done HM & PT.
So long as our recruitment department is 'in the ball' not massively concerned about our out of contract players leaving as going to be so many good players at our level looking for clubs
Am starting to wonder if the rumours are true and we might see at least one of the three musketeers heading down the A12.
Heard a rumour Skuse could've the best bet but the coming weeks will tell us all.
First things first will be the Head Coach and imagine HM a shoe in if he wants it but can't see PT remaining but in these difficult times you can't he sure.
Anyway RC has got away with his gamble and in theory we should financially be in a stronger position than many.

Burnsie
The real frustration is that second half Tranmere were desperate for their point and sat deeper and deeper.

We should have won today and that is the annoying factor. We could and should have been competing for a top seven place still the wretched run post Christmas scuppered our chances.

Still onward and upward.
