    Plenty of scope for banana skins; given we are almost in a mini-league at the bottom (with a head start though); but we must have one of the easier run-ins; having already played most of the league's 'form teams' twice. At least three teams already look doomed given their position and remaining fixtures. Beat them and we should easily pick up the last few points we need against the rest."

Joe Dunne insists his Colchester United players are not feeling the pressure of a relegation battle.

And the U’s boss believes four more wins might well be enough to stay in League One.

Colchester head into their game at Crawley Town lying three points above the bottom four, with 12 games remaining.

The U’s are four points better off than they were at the same stage last season and have lost six fewer matches, this time around.
