Monday 8th Aprilk
This Easter Monday, Leeds United return to Layer Road for the first time since the U's beat them in an epic FA Cup tie in 1971
The U's will give Wayne Brown a late fitness test after he suffered a heavy fall at the end of Good Friday's Southend game. Otherwise, a full Colchester team to pick from, with the XI set to remain unchanged.
Is on fire, after reaching 20 Championship goals (21 in all) and now has six in the last three games.
After the 2-1 victory at Plymouth, Frazer Richardson (hip) and Micky Gray (hamstring) are both likely to miss out.
Alan Thompson may return to the starting line-up. It is reported that Tore Andre Flo has returned to training, and set for a place on the bench.
Has come into form of late, impressing in United's recent wins at Preston and Plymouth, fater complaints at Elland Road that he just wasn't the same player they kept leading to Northern Irland.
The 1971 FA Cup win, with goals from Ray Crawford (2) - an ex-England player and Dave Simmons beat a Leeds side in its pomp in 1971, in front of 15,000 at Layer Road. Not bad, for virtual unknowns at the bottom of the old Fouth Division!
The referee is one of the Premiership stars Mr A.Wiley.
U's 3 - Leeds 1
The U's face Hull, away, next Saturday. Tickets still avaliable.
