Poll result : U`s are staying up!

Poll result : U`s are staying up!

Having run this poll twice during the season - and only just noticed that it`s been there for two months - Vital Colchester announces the results regarding expectations for the season.

Surprisingly, more supporters (26%) thought that the team would be relegated now than they did in the autumn (13%) but thankfully that is now a mathematical impossibility. The rest of the results are printed below:

January - March Results

Relegation - 26%
Mid-table security - 52%
Play-off - 17%
Play-off and promotion - 2%
Automatic promotion - 3%

October - November Results

Relegation - 13%
Mid Table Safety - 40%
Top 10 - 24%
Play offs - 13%
Promotion - 8%
Other 2%

With only a small part of the season remaining, Colchester fans still have plenty to be happy about, achieving way above the predicted relegation.

One area for concern remains the U`s away form, which has seen Colchester win only a handful of games on the road.
