COLCHESTER United have today sold out their away ticket allocation for their big Carabao Cup game at Crawley Town.

U's fans have snapped up all available tickets for the fourth-round clash at the Broadfield Stadium, on October 29.

It is understood that Colchester will be backed by around 1,600 supporters at the game, where a quarter-final spot will be at stake.

The tie will be a sell-out, after Crawley announced yesterday that they had also sold all of their tickets for the game.

Colchester will be looking for quick revenge for their 2-1 defeat against Crawley in League Two last weekend.

John McGreal's side have three league games prior to the Crawley clash.

They host Morecambe on Saturday and also take on Crewe Alexandra (October 22) and Newport County (October 26) before facing the Reds.
