F.A. Cup Draw: Points Make Preston!

F.A. Cup Draw: Points Make Preston!

Colchester United`s first opposition of 2010 are Preston after the weekend`s F.A. Cup Third Round draw.

The Championship side were beaten twice during the least league fixtures between the pair, in season 2007/8.

The away tie is the club`s third in as many rounds during this year`s competition and will represent a touch fixture in prospect.

Although not the plumb Premiership tie some were hoping for, the game certainly represents a winnable one for a Aidy Boothroyd`s men.

The team has been warned!
