Banter with Burns with Colchester United Supporters Association chairman Jon Burns

I HOPE that that the 4G coverage around Sincil Bank is up to scratch tomorrow or you might be lucky enough to have a 'friend' with access to the stadium Wifi password.

Phones will be out everywhere analysing the scores as they happen around League Two as the U’s head into another last-day challenge.

There’ll be cries and cheers at frequent intervals I reckon and it might be best if our U’s players do all they can to block it out. They’ll have enough to think about.

Newport are in the box seat but nothing can be certain with so many of the challengers away from home, this weekend.

Even Stevenage could sneak in from 11th place with the right results.

The U’s just have to win their game and not stress about elsewhere.

Our goal difference is a slight advantage so at least we won’t need a thumping victory, just the three points, which of course we have taken from Lincoln before courtesy of our very worthy Player of the Season, Frankie Kent.

The double over MK Dons was achieved - there's no reason why the U’s cannot manage another.

It was a fantastic atmosphere last Saturday. You could feel the positivity amongst the fans and that was mirrored by the players. Sammie Szmodics' early goal helped big time. It settled his team-mates down so that they just played their football. Just as they did earlier on in the season when the U’s were in the top three.

Sammie was influential all game. How he managed to set up Frankie for the second goal, I just don’t know - it was an incredible piece of skill.

The warm comfort of Eastman and Kent at the back was enhanced by home debut man Ethan Ross, a keeper who loves to deal with a cross, which made for a pleasant change.

All in all a top team performance. The U’s we remember from a few months ago before the slippage stepped in.

I appreciate that it will take a barrow load of luck and good fortune for the U’s to extend their season.

I do think they have a very decent chance though. Football and unpredictably go hand in hand of course.

I just hope that whatever the final standings, the U’s end on a strong note with the fans right behind them for 90 minutes.

That’s all anyone can ask of them.

As a reminder, it’s Star Wars day tomorrow (May the 4th) and the U’s will need our Jedi Warriors to wield the Force with a vengeance against the Dark Lords of Lincoln.

It’s certainly not Mission Impossible though. That’s it for the film analogies folks.

Thanks to all of the U’s fans off to support the team in the morning.

Safe journey all and best of luck to John McGreal and his men.

Jon Burns, Colchester United Supporters Association chairman
