Colchester United winger Ashley Vincent could be facing another spell on the sidelines after being stretched off against Tranmere Rovers.

Vincent hurt his ankle, the same one he injured at Swindon back in September which kept him out for more than five months, in the first half of the 1-1 draw.

The former Wolves trainee is now set to miss the rest of the U's season.

Colchester manager Aidy Boothroyd said: “It's the same ankle and he has a really bad injury on it.

“We will have a look at it in the next couple of days and hopefully we can do something about it."
