'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Clive Set to Miss Out

Colchester United target man Clive Platt is set to miss Saturday's derby fixture against Ipswich through injury.

The ex-MK Dons front-man was withdrawn from the U's sides last weekend after his back went into spasms.

'My back went into spasms, and it's still very sore. I'm just hoping that it clears up in time to play against Ipswich," Platt told the EADT.

'I don't know how the injury started. I can't remember a bang. Usually, you get a whack, but this time it just seemed to cease up. It was very painful whenever I tried to jump for the ball, or lean back, so I really had to come off.

'It's not a major problem, but there's not much I can do. I have to leave it alone, take some anti-inflammatory tablets and try to keep it mobile if possible.'

He explained: 'I'll know more later in the week. I guess I'm a doubt for Saturday, depending on what happens over the next day or so.

'We played so well at West Brom, and we want to do the same against Ipswich. There should be a good atmosphere.

'After the defeat (5-1) at Norwich, we have been determined to make sure that we don't just turn up and get walked-over. We were unlucky to lose at West Brom, and we still have a lot to play for, not just for ourselves but also for the manager and the fans.

'We did well at Ipswich for 70 minutes. The missed penalty (by Mark Yeates) was a turning point in that game, because we were cruising at 1-0 up. But as has happened so often this season, we then let it slip late on.'
