Wright hopeful of being fit for Easter fixtures
DAVID Wright says he should be fit for Colchester United’s double-header of Easter fixtures.
The defender or midfielder was left “on a different planet” after suffering a head injury in Saturday’s 3-2 victory at Stevenage.
He was concussed and, after being withdrawn at half-time, had to be taken to hospital.
However, the 33-year-old says he should be available for the matches against Oldham Athletic, tomorrow, and Crewe Alexandra, on Easter Monday.
“I’ve had a couple of days’ rest and feel fine now,” said the former Ipswich Town man.
“It wasn’t a nice injury, although I can’t say I remember too much about it actually happening.
“I’ve seen a video, though.
“The ball bounced, I bowed my head and their player raised his knee.
“It’s horrible to watch and I was on a different planet when the doctor saw me at half-time.
“There was no way I could carry on but hopefully I’m over it now.”
