The U's v Hartlepool
29th Sept 2012
Weston Homes Community Stadium
Joe Dunne's first game in management comes for Colchester on Saturday afternoon when they entertain Hartlepool.
Days after being named caretaker manager Dunne got the managers job and has since brought in Craig Eastmond, Sanchez Watt and Jabo Ibehre on loan with all three pushing for starting spots for Colchester.
Magnus Okuonghae (ankle), worrying with the defender the topscorer for The U's; will need to prove his fitness to return with Freddie Sears and Andy Bond also pushing for recalls.
Hartlepool have Steve Howard (gashed shin) and Simon Walton (ankle) as the only real concerns for the visitors really.
