▶️Ian Holloway's Pre Colchester Press Conference

Listen to all of Ian Holloway’s pre Colchester United press conference – only on iFollow Mariners.

3 December 2020

The Town boss started with the injury news and confirmed that James Hanson will be in the squad that travels to Essex - if he has come through today’s training session okay.

Max Wright is set to miss the next two weeks with a soft tissue tear, and Matt Green will almost certainly miss this weekend after missing training today with a groin problem.

The Mariners will be playing in front of supporters for the first time since March on Saturday as United welcome back 1,000 of their fans to The JobServe Community Stadium.

This is what Ollie had to say about the return of fans. Speaking on iFollow, he said: “Without the passion of the fans, even if it’s only home fans, it’s not the same, and the game itself is an emotional game, it’s a wonderful game to be part of.

“There’s ups and downs all the time, so the passion you get from it, for me there’s nothing like it.

“At the moment, it’s passionless - we’re trying to make it real, but it doesn’t feel real, so I’m totally up for letting people be brave enough to go into the grounds.

“It’ll be great to see some football people coming into the ground, although they’ll hate us, but who cares!”
