Joe Dunne has told Colchester United fans to fasten their seatbelts for a rollercoaster ride between now and the end of the season.

The U’s boss predicts there will be plenty of ups and downs in League One - and thinks the relegation picture can “change in a heartbeat”.

Colchester’s survival battle continues tomorrow when they host faltering Tranmere Rovers, at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

The U’s lie in 21st position in the table - a point adrift of safety - but Dunne is expecting plenty of changes near the bottom of the table with 14 games to go.

Dunne said: “I think there’ll be plenty of twists and turns, between now and the end of the season."
