U's Man In Team Of The Week

U's Man In Team Of The Week

MARK YEATES, Colchester United's Irish wing-wizard, has once again been named in the League One Team Of The Week.

Yeates ran the show in the first half at Hereford United and scored a cracking free-kick, as well as playing a vital part in the U's second goal.

The 23-year-old now has twelve goals to his name this season and is three short of his season's goal-target tally.

And Yeates revealed, post-match: 'I've set myself a target of 15 goals for the season, and I reckon I can still make it.

'It was nice to score from another free-kick. There was a possibility that Simon Hackney was going to float it into the box, but the gaffer has encouraged me to take them if I fancy them, and I'm not shy in having a shot!'

Yeah, I still cant decide whether we're better without him or not. I would play him just behind Platt and then have two natural wingers on the wings otherwise with Yeates on the wing we sometimes lack width.

Match Day Officials v Swindon

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Swindon Town this weekend.

Unhappy Keeper Back With Norwich

Kean had come in on a 28-day from Norwich but his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium is over with Keen confirming he was 'unhappy with a couple of things.'

Panicking? Not Yet!

Before the Southend game Keen insisted he wasn't panicking, despite the U's being seven-points adrift of safety. Three-goals in the final 10-minutes lead to another defeat of course.
