Grimsby Town boss Michael Jolley expects “a good football match” in Tuesday’s Sky Bet League Two clash with John McGreal’s side at Blundell Park (7.45pm).
Speaking exclusively on iFollow Mariners, he said: “I think it will be a good football match because we like to try and pass the ball – I think Colchester are similar, they pass the ball and they’re a possession-based team.
“For the neutral, should there be any, it will be quite a decent game of football.
“I have a huge amount of respect for John McGreal – he’s done a really solid job at Colchester over the years, and they’re developing into a good team.”
And Town are looking to make it four consecutive league games unbeaten, but Jolley acknowledged that his side is a work in progress.
He said: “We’ve improved in terms of our results in the last three games, but we know there’s still more work to do moving forward.
“Having a team has helped us – having more players fit and available has helped us but, equally, we’re not where we want to be in the league.
“And we need to start moving forward and moving up the league as quickly as we can.”
