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

One last hurrah!

Michail Antonio will play his last game for Colchester this weekend against Tranmere, he then returns to Reading at the end of his three-month loan spell.

John Ward, as he told The East Anglian Times, has confirmed this and also praised the 21-year-olds loan spell with The U's: 'this Saturday will be Antonio's last game for us.

'He's done very well for us. He has excited the fans with his pace, and he's also scored a few goals.'

The loan has been good for 'all parties' but with the maximum amount on one-month spells a player can have standing at three, this has now been reached.

Antonio will be 'in and around' the first team back with Reading but there is a chance that he will return to Colchester again in January for the rest of the season: 'it has been a loan move that I think has helped all parties, and Brian McDermott (Reading manager) now wants him back with them, in and around his squad.

'I spoke to Brian on Monday, and told him to keep us in the picture if he was to become available again in January. I told him to make us his first phone call.

'But that would have to be a loan deal until the end of the season, which would be a big shout.'

Should the attacker manage to force his way into the first team picture with the championship side then I would think it unlikely Antonio will return in the New Year.
