White can help ease U's defensive shortage
7:45am Thursday 18th October 2012 in Sport
Colchester United manager Joe Dunne says he would have no hesitation turning to long-serving John White to help ease his defensive problems.
The U’s could be left short of central defensive cover for the visit of Carlisle United this weekend, following Matt Heath’s hamstring injury.
Heath was withdrawn in the second half of Colchester’s 2-1 friendly win over West Ham United.
And although it appears as though the injury is not as bad as first feared, the experienced defender could still be set for a spell on the sidelines.
