Departed winger, Mark Yeates, has said promotions for both Middlesbrough and Colchester would make a fantastic season.
"I wouldn`t be surprised if they went up next season and I would be delighted if that were to happen," the winger said in local paper, the Colchester Gazette, this week. Colchester are currently at 9/2 to gain promotion next season; they kick off with an away trip to Norwich.
Yeates, although now focused on achieving promotion from the Championship for the side he just joined, will be following United`s results next season.
He added: "If Colchester can get back into the Championship it would be an extra boost for everyone.
For Middlesbrough and Colchester to both go up next year would be the perfect season for me."
