Watt ready to rejoin U's matchday squad

Gazette: Watt ready to rejoin U's matchday squad Watt ready to rejoin U's matchday squad

Sanchez Watt is set to join his Colchester United team-mates on their coach trip to face Oldham Athletic this weekend.
 

The U’s midfielder, who joined from Arsenal last summer, has endured a torrid time this season as thigh injuries have curtailed his involvement, with his last run-out coming against Leyton Orient at the end of August.
 

Just as he thought he was coming back from the initial injury, Watt broke down again in training in October, but he is set to be involved again now and boss Joe Dunne said that is a big boost.
 

Dunne said: “The fact that we have got him back into the squad is a bonus.
 

“He’ll be travelling with us barring any mishaps between now and Saturday, so that’s a positive for the team because he is a real character."

See tomorrow's Gazette for full reaction to Sanchez Watt's comeback and previews of the U's game at Oldham Athletic.

It's about time we had some good news on the injury front; and it's coming at a crucial time. Five or six points from the remaining three games of 2013 (two at home) against three other potentially relegation threatened sides (Oldham; Stevenage & Crewe); then if we do the 'double' over just one of MK Dons or Gillingham; and suddenly the U's will be comfortably mid table before February,

By contrast; last season; towards the end of January 2013; we had incurred a run of nine consecutive defeats and barely any more points than we have today; and that is before these five potentially winnable fixtures where up to 15 points are available.

In the second half of the season 2013-14; we face Home fixtures against the majority of the 'form' sides such as Brentford; Preston; Rotherham; Bradford & Coventry; plus benefit from Home games against fellow strugglers; Sheffield Utd: Shrewsbury; Bristol City; Tranmere & Oldham. The U's have therefore faced many of the toughest most crucial away legs in the first half of the season.

Last Saturday was awful; and we will probably get hammered by sides like Wolves (away) ; whilst our nine draws to date might be viewed as 18 points lost. But we have taken these points drawn largely from many of the division's form sides when away from home. It's never going to be easy; but the next 26 fixtures should be a little less challenging than our first 20 given the home advantage. But positive home vocal support is vital.
