Layer Road

Colchester Preview

Three games to go in the Championship season and the supporters of a number of clubs including Coventry City are nervously awaiting the final
act of the campaign.

With Barnsley playing Leicester and Sheffield Wednesday visiting Blackpool, the Sky Blues simply have to make their game against relegated Colchester count.

The U's however are in upbeat mood despite being condemned to the drop.
They will be moving into a new stadium next season and a relaxed squad have gained decent results against Ipswich and Leicester recently.

Vital Quotes: Geraint Williams

The U's boss told BBC Radio Essex: 'We've got professional pride and we've got fans who come to watch us, so it's important the players show the [right] attitude.

'We've got to make sure the staff keep that going and that we still keep the training interesting and relevant to Saturday's match.'

Colchester United Team News:

Rising star Medy Elito is set to continue his run in the first-team. The 17-year-old winger has looked impressive in recent weeks.

Player to watch: Kevin Lisbie

The former Charlton striker has tried manfully to fill the gap left by the departures of Jamie Cureton and Chris Iwelumo and has indicated that
he wants to stay with the U's next season.

Coventry City Team News:

David McNamee is back in training but still a long way off a first-team comeback.

Player to watch: Jay Tabb

Can the Sky Blues' star man this season conjure up some more quality
monents to ensure Championship football next year?
