U's Vs Millwall - Preview

Colchester United host Millwall tonight looking for their first victory at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Recently appointed U's boss Paul Lambert will be looking to build on Saturday's hard-fought win over Stockport County. The ex-Celtic midfielder will be hopeful of breaking the U's poor home run at the WHCS.

The Lions, who currently lie in 3rd place in League One, following Saturday's win over Leeds United.

Vital Quotes:

Lambert: I Just Want To Win At Home

He said: 'I just want to win at home now.

'The fans who came to watch us at Stockport were terrific and I`m sure they will get right behind us again tonight.

'What has happened in previous games happened when I had no control over things.

'I couldn`t influence what had happened at home or away.

'But the pitch is still the same size as it is away from home.

'The more people talk about it (the home record), the more people actually want to believe it.

'My view is that it`s a fresh start and we`ll do our utmost to try and win as many games as we can.'

Chris Coyne and Medy Elito return to the U's squad after being rested at the weekend.

This will be a tough test. If we can come away with all 3 points it could be the turning point in the season and one to push on from.
