1st September 2007
The Clarets will be hoping to get back on track in the League away to Colchester at Layer Road tomorrow. The midweek 3-0 victory in the Carling Cup against Oldham will have raised spirits, but Colchester riding high on the back of a 3-0 away win against Preston last Saturday will not be an easy team to beat.
The Clarets do have a number of injury worries with Lafferty also still suspended. We could however see new boy, Graham Alexander make his debut for the Clarets after signing from Preston this week.
Theer are also rumours that James O'Connor may be on his way to Stoke as the transfer window closes tonight, so we really do have a weakened midfield at the moment unless the gaffer can work miracles by midnight tonight.
Will Alan Mahon start after an impressive display against Oldham?
Will it still be Blake and Gray upfront with Akinbiyi on the bench despite all three scoring on Tuesday night?
A lot of 'ifs and buts' but we really must get something out of this match if only to keep the 'SC out' brigade at bay.
'We got a draw there (Colchester)last season in what wasn't the best of games.
'It's a tough place to go, we know that and they are on the back of a great result.
'Colchester still have the nucleus of their team together, so only a fool would think they might fall apart this year.
'We are not surprised and we know it's a tough game, but we are looking forward to it ourselves.
'We need to forget Oldham and remember Scunthorpe away!'
Colchester midfielder Kevin McLeod might return following a groin injury.
Matthew Connolly, the loan from Arsenal, however will be hoping to keep his place.
Dean Gerken and Clive Platt are suspended.
Do they have anybody else? Iwelumo gone, Cureton gone?
Kyle Lafferty serves the second game of a three-match ban while Jay Rodriguez and Gabor Kiraly are out injured. Duff (abductor)is also doubtful. Berisha is also injured and could be out of action for up to six weeks although we are still awaiting an official announcement after a medical yesterday
New boy,Graham Alexander if he features and if he does will it be at his regular right back position or in midfield?
A pretty dull draw 0-0 at Layer Road last February but in hindsight that was a good point considering where Colchester finished and the fact we were in the middle of that awful 19 match winless run!
0-1 Clarets! Come on lads
Local derby against Blackpool in two weeks time at Turf Moor- Saturday 15th September 3pm KO (Unless of course they rearrange the postponed QPR match at Turf Moor between now and then?)
