Kit: Competition is Healthy

Kit: Competition is Healthy

Colchester United assistant manager Kit Symons believes the added competition for a place in the U`s starting eleven can only be healthy for both the players and management.

The U`s, who signed four players during the January transfer window, are looking very strong at present, despite having a handful of first-team members out injured.

Symons, 36, admitted the selection headache facing Geraint Williams ahead of today`s trip to the KC stadium, where they face Hull, is a nice problem.

The former Portsmouth defender recently told The Colchester Gazette: "It`s a nice headache to have."

"We have a few people coming back from injury and I think the manger would be delighted to have a few selection problems," he explained this week.

Symons, who linked up with Williams last month in his new role after taking over from Micky Adams, is thrilled to have players knocking on the door for a place in the first team: "There are people knocking on the door waiting to get into the team and that`s a healthy situation to be in."
