Lisbie Left Out For Preston Cup Clash

Lisbie Left Out For Preston Cup Clash



Kevin Lisbie did not travel for Colchester`s FA Cup fixture with Preston after the striker`s Ipswich loan was extended for one possibly final club game.

The U`s leading scorer this season was due to re-join Roy Keane at Ipswich this week but the Irishman belatedly cleared the Cup-tied Lisbie to play for United this weekend.

Lisbie`s final game of his loan spell was due to be Monday`s encounter at Southampton until the media speculated that he might pull on a United shirt once more.

Perhaps manager Aidy Boothroyd was not prepared to disrupt his match-day plans without the Jamaican or maybe Lisbie`s exclusion foregrounds the fact that he may not return on a permanent basis, despite his wishes.

BBC Radio Essex speculation as to Lisbie`s next career destination pre-match included Championship teams Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace.

Financial limits might mean that Lisbie's second spell could be his last for Colchester.

I'm sure Lisbie is glad he's not a part of what's happening at Deepdale... Ouch.
