Slater – “U’s can challenge the frontrunners”
Craig Slater insists Colchester United’s long unbeaten run shows that they are now among the best teams in League Two. The U’s lie in the play-off zone, seven points off the automatic promotion places having taken 23 points from a possible 27.
John McGreal’s in-form side have gone nine league games unbeaten for the first time since achieving the milestone under John Ward in March, 2012. And midfielder Slater believes their excellent recent form shows that they are up there with the leading teams in the division.
Slater: “The run that we’ve been on has been fantastic and i don’t think it could have been any better”.
