Colchester vs. Southampton

Community Stadium

Sat 5th March 2011

Colchester v Saints Preview

Colchester sit 4 points behind Southampton and will be looking to reproduce last seasons result when they picked up three points.

Southampton will be desperate to get the defeat at Walsall out of their system and will also be after the victory.

Both sides are in the fight for a top six place and I can see this being a very hard fought game.

Vital Quotes:

Colchester Team News:

After coming on as a substitute in the last game, Colchester could give Steven Gillespie a start.

Neither Brian Wilson nor Magnus Okuonghae are likely to be ready for the game.

Midfielder John-Joe O'Toole also came on as a sub last time out and could be ready for a start.

Player to watch: Ben Williams

The keeper will need to be on his toes as he faces a team that isn't scared to shoot.

Southampton Team News:

Saints injury list has grown recently though it is hoped that Guly will be available to return.Oxlade-Chamberlain is carrying a slight strain and may be forced to miss out.

Player to watch: Adam Lallana

Adam is due a super show and hopefully we will see him at his best.

Last season we lost 2-1 and I have a hunch they will fancy there chances of a repeat. I don't think that we will lose and hope that we can beat them with some really good football.

Last season we had more pressure on us because we were behind and trying to play catch-up. This time we are ahead and they are the team trying to catch-up. Somehow I fancy our chances of reversing the score.
