Colchester next up for Under-23s

City Under-23s face their Colchester United counterparts in Essex this evening (Thursday, 7pm kick-off).

The Professional Development League encounter will be played at Colchester’s Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Luke Williams’ side are currently in the midst of a fixture pile-up, playing league games against Ipswich Town last Friday (1-0 loss) and Birmingham City on Monday (2-2 draw).

They face a further two games next week, on Monday away at Hull City, before a trip to Swansea City on Thursday in the Premier League Cup knockout stages.

Meanwhile, City have been handed a home tie against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League Cup quarter-finals, if they can overcome Swansea.
