The Us are by size a little team from Essex. They play out of the Colchester Community Stadium having left Layer Road in for the start of the 2008/09 season.
This was not a good season for them as they ended up in their first season relegated back to the First Division.
Last season Colchester had a reasonably good season as they finished just behind us outside the play-offs.
Their main rivals are Southend United with whom they contest the Essex Derby. The head to head for this competition is Southend 29 wins, 17 draws and Colchester 23 wins.
Colchester have a fierce rivalry also with Wycombe. This dates back to both clubs' latter years of life in the Conference.
Season 1985/86 saw Wycombe win an FA Cup game 2-0 in a game marred by crowd trouble at Loakes Park.
Whilst Colchester's biggest claim to fame is a 3-2 win over Don Revie's Leeds United in 1971. Their highest ever placing was 10th place in the championship in season 2006/07
Not a lot then for anyone to write home about unless you happen to support the Us.
So how will we finish against them this season. I believe we will win comfortably at home. Last season we managed a 0-0 draw at St Mary's as we tried to get a team together.
The return leg at Colchester, in our run-in, was a 2-1 win for them in a game we could and should have done better. This year we will not be so surprised by the smallness of their ground and I fully expect to see us win the three points.
I feel that they may do a little less well this season and may finish in the middle of the table.
