HUISH Park will forever hold fond memories for those of a Colchester United persuasion.

But the U’s of 2019 could tomorrow ensure that the venue becomes an even more cherished part of their recent history.

The point gained from Colchester’s goal-less draw with Yeovil Town back in 2006 was enough to secure them a historic promotion to second-tier football for the first time.

Tomorrow, the U’s travel to Somerset with promotion currently looking far less likely – but it is still possible.

They will need to win against the Glovers though, who themselves are desperate for three points but for completely different reasons.

Yeovil are fighting against relegation from League Two and are desperate for points, with just three games of the season remaining.

The man tasked with the challenge of leading them to safety is Neale Marmon – a name that will be familiar to U’s fans of a certain age.

Marmon made more than 50 appearances during a brief spell at Colchester in the early nineties.

Tomorrow, he will be plotting his former club’s downfall as he bids to preserve Yeovil’s Football League status.

Ironically, Marmon was part of the Colchester side relegated into the Conference during his time at Layer Road.

He will be striving to ensure that the same disappointment does not befall him as a manager.

Yet there is arguably more pressure on the hosts than there is on the U’s, given what is at stake and the fact that the Glovers are at home.

That could well play into Colchester’s hands, especially as they go into his match with confidence boosted, following the 1-0 victory over Grimsby Town on Good Friday.

That win over the Mariners gave the U’s a fighting chance of making the play-offs, though it is still a tall order.

They lie two points off the play-off positions with three games remaining.

With their final two matches against MK Dons, who may well need a result to clinch automatic promotion and already-promoted Lincoln City, it is essential that they claim victory against Yeovil.

It promises to be a nerve-racking afternoon at Huish Park – not for the first time in the U’s recent history.
