TOWN hope to turn the Galpharm into a wall of blue and white tomorrow as Lee Clark’s side aim to maintain the feelgood factor ahead of the play-offs.
Chairman Dean Hoyle’s decision to cut admission prices to £10 adults and £5 concessions is set to have the turnstiles clicking for Colchester United’s visit.
Each fan will find a free T-shirt, either blue or white, on their seat which they will be asked to wear to recreate the club colours on a stand-sized scale.
And with more than 360 season-ticket holders taking the one-off chance to transfer to the ‘away’ Pink Link Stand, it promises to be a festival atmosphere.
But for boss Clark, whose side sealed their play-off place with last week’s thumping 6-0 League I win at Stockport, it’s a key clash in the bid to finish as far up the table as possible.
“We want to end the regular season with two wins (Town head for Exeter next Saturday) and see where that takes us in terms of the final table,” he said.
Colchester’s play-of hopes ended when they were held 1-1 at home to Tranmere last week but Clark added: “They’re professionals and will want to prove a point. We’ll have to be totally focused and on top of our game to ensure the outcome we all want.”
Clark has a fully-fit squad other than Michael Collins, and he hopes the midfielder, who today sees the specialist who operated on his damaged finger, will be available for the trip to Exeter.
Meanwhile winger Lionel Ainsworth, sent back early from his loan spell at Brentford after a public snub of manager Andy Scott, will not link up with Town again until next pre-season.
“Lionel is at a crossroads and needs to have a long, hard think and come back and really knuckle down,” said Clark.
