Colchester United supporters are sending out an SOS ahead of their crunch basement battle with Stevenage this weekend.

U’s fans want to “Sell Out Stevenage”, with momentum gathering to pack the away end for their vital League One relegation six-pointer at Broadhall Way on Saturday.

Colchester’s damaging 2-1 home defeat against Tranmere Rovers has left them precariously close to the drop zone, with only goal difference keeping them out.

And that has prompted a rallying cry from their supporters, ahead of their huge game with fellow strugglers Boro’.

Tickets for Colchester’s trip to Stevenage are priced at £20 for adults, £17 concessions (60 years plus), £12 youth (16-21 years), £10 juniors (seven-15) and £7 infants.

Ticket prices increase by £2 on the day apart from infant prices, which go up by £1.

They can be bought by visiting the U’s ticket office or by calling 0845 437 9089.
