Colchester v QPR Preview

The U`s will go into Saturday`s home tie with QPR in confident mood buoyed by their recent good form shown at Burnley and Luton the week previous. With the biggest Layer Road crowd of the season expected and no injury worries for manager Geriant Williams, the U`s will looking to bag all 3 points.

Vital Quotes:

Colchester United Team News:

Kemal Izzet shook off the ankle injury that had seen him leave Turf Moor on crutches to figure at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday, and he will be looking to keep his place over Johnnie Jackson who should make the bench.

Kevin Mcleod who was once loaned to QPR from Everton, will be looking to make his debut at Layer Road and should figure at some point in the game, Tuesday`s late substitute looks likely to start on the bench along with Jackson, Gerken, Elokobi, White & Jamie Guy.

Player to watch: Jamie Cureton

Former Rangers front runner Cureton will be looking to continue where he left off against Derby County at Layer Road, a game in which he scored his eighth career hatrick and first for Colchester United.

QPR Team News:

Rangers look likely to be without the services of Dexter Blackstock who is suffering from a groin injury, and looks likely to be replaced by Ray Jones. Kanyuka may start at centre back with Stewart moving to the right to accommodate his defensive colleague.

Rangers have Welsh International and former Southampton Goalkeeper Paul Jones between the sticks, and long time servant Marc Bircham in the centre of Midfield.

Player to watch: Marc Bircham

Bircham has been in fine form in the last couple of games and he will need to dominate Izzet and Watson if Rangers want to come out on top.

Match Facts & Stats

Ref Watch:

We are "treated" to a Premiership referee for the 3rd time this season on Saturday as Alan Wiley takes charge. He has already had a busy season, sending off two in Blackburn`s game at Pompey, including Andy Todd, a decision that was later recindered.

Match Prediction:

Vital Colchester are going for a 3-1 Victory to the U`s with Cureton bagging a brace against his former club and Greg Halford scoring at the back stick with a header.
