Colchester United manager Joe Dunne is expecting a “humdinger” when his side go head to head with Leyton Orient this weekend.

The U’s have a good record at Brisbane Road over recent seasons and have won on three of their last four visits to the venue.

Dunne led them to a 2-0 win there last season, in one of his first matches in charge of the U’s.

They face an even tougher task this time around, against an O’s side who sit joint top of League One.

But Dunne says he is relishing the chance of playing against one of the leading sides in the division.

Lets see what he says later? Its a win/win situation for him today and probably he has already rehearsed his excuses!

Personally I think Rotherham at home next Tuesday will be a lot sterner test than Orient. Now that I Live in Knutsford Cheshire it gives me the chance to watch many mid week games and having seen Rotherham play three times this season, their work rate is phenomenal. If we try to play to many cross field balls, then I fear another home defeat could be on the cards. Unfortunately I'm not attending todays game due to stinking cold, but wish the lads good luck.
