Ibehre backs U's to beat the drop

Gazette: Confident - new U's signing Jabo Ibehre believes Colchester United can avoid relegation from League One this season. Confident - new U's signing Jabo Ibehre believes Colchester United can avoid relegation from League One this season.

Jabo Ibehre has returned to Colchester United to help them in their battle to beat the dreaded drop.

But the U’s have denied they have accepted a bid from Charlton Athletic for Anthony Wordsworth.

Speculation has linked the Addicks with a swoop for Wordsworth but the Gazette understands that the U’s are yet to receive any firm bids for the midfielder.

However, Colchester have completed the signing of experienced striker Ibehre, who has left MK Dons to join the U’s until the end of the season.

Ibehre enjoyed a three-month loan spell at the Weston Homes Community Stadium earlier this season, scoring four times in 15 appearances.

And the 29-year-old said he has no qualms about re-signing for Joe Dunne’s side - despite their precarious position in League One.

Ibehre said: “I had no doubts about coming back.

“I believe we can get out of it - I wouldn’t have come back if I didn’t think that."

However, he doesn't want to commit himself to longer than the end of the season. I wonder why? Is it in case we might go down or, is it that he wants more money to stay longer, or possibly both?

Joe can you buy a player who can score goals, as that is what we require at the moment. Jabo is a good player, a playmaker so to speak, but he isn't an out and out goal scorer (Hopefully he can prove me wrong).

We need a guy who just stands at the front, and is a poacher.
