IT is unlikely that there will be too many comings and goings this month at Florence Park.

But given the positive impact that he has had in his short time at Colchester United, re-signing Theo Robinson until the end of the season could be the best move they potentially make in this transfer window.

U's head coach John McGreal has made it clear that he would love the on-loan Southend United striker to stay for longer.

It's no real surprise, given the fact that he has scored seven goals this season having made only ten starts.

A repeat show in the second-half season could potentially be the difference between a top-seven finish or missing out.

But it seems that there is uncertainty about whether or not a deal can be done.

And the longer time goes on without a loan renewal being struck, the less chance it seems of it happening.

It would be a shame if Robinson did depart, despite him having to be content with a place on the bench at Stevenage, last weekend.

There was a cruel irony in the fact that Colchester should draw a rare blank in front of goal on a day when they had three main strikers involved for the first time, this season.

Robinson, Luke Norris and Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe were all on the pitch at various times at the Lamex Stadium.

But the U’s were unable to make a breakthrough, despite playing against ten men for more than an hour.

The trio all did their best to break the deadlock and Colchester’s inability to find the net – and a way past Stevenage’s outstanding keeper Paul Farman – was collective.

Put simply, it was just one of those days in front of goal for McGreal’s men.

It was undoubtedly a disappointing outcome, particularly given the fact that Colchester were playing against a relegation-threatened Stevenage side who have not won in the league since October.

But it would be harsh to criticise the U’s too much for their failure to find the net.

It is the first time they have failed to score in a league game since October 22, when they drew 0-0 at Crewe Alexandra.

They remain one of the most prolific sides in League Two, with only four sides having hit the net more times so far in the current campaign.

Indeed, only a fortnight or so ago, Colchester scored eight goals in three games.

They have the firepower, especially if they fulfil their objective of keeping loanee Robinson at the club for longer.

And with Ogedi-Uzokwe now back at Florence Park and hoping to make an impact following his impressive loan spell at Derry City where he finished as the top scorer in the League of Ireland, the U’s have options in their front-line attack.

Add to that the ammunition of the likes of Callum Harriott, Frank Nouble, Kwame Poku and Courtney Senior and there is no shortage of creativity and attacking armoury in McGreal’s squad.

Next up for Colchester is another trip to play against a side languishing at the bottom of the League Two table.

The U’s must ensure that they quickly rediscover their clinical edge and composure in front of goal against Morecambe and punish their opponents, when they get the chance.
