FA Cup draw will stir emotions, says U's boss Dunne
Joe Dunne said Colchester United's first-round tie in this season's FA Cup will stir up lots of emotions in the county - no matter who they play.
The U's will travel to play either Chelmsford City or East Thurrock United, following the draw this lunchtime.
The two non-league sides will battle it out for the right to host Colchester when they replay their fourth-qualifying round tie tomorrow night, following their 2-2 draw at Melbourne Park yesterday.
U's boss Dunne said: “Whoever we play, the interest in the game will be great.
“I’m sure they’ll be a great build-up in the weeks ahead and it really makes it interesting, which is the most important part.
“Whoever we play the ground will be packed with high emotions, both on and off the pitch and that’s all you want.”
