For Colchester United, their opening game of 2017 saw them elevated into the top-eight position in League Two.

They have had a remarkable transformation in both form and results and will be getting ready for their next game.

Their next match however, would see them host high-flying Carlisle United on Saturday. Weeks ago, Colchester United’s players had trudged off the pitch at Huish Park. This came on the heels of their defeat to Yeovil Town, which extended their winless run to a total of ten matches.

The loss was truly painful and saw forward Kurtis Guthrie, describing the form of the players as one in shambles. However, the turnaround has been amazing, with Colchester winning six out of their seven games after that disappointing match against the Glovers.

They have been quite dominant in most of the games in this unbeaten run, with setbacks at a minimal level. They have also developed new traits, and have showed the ability to recover from disappointments during games, overcome setbacks and come off triumphant.

Also, their injury list is quite shorter than it was previously and competition among players for places have increased.

Their coach John McGreal, has shown a lot of resilience and comes off as a forward thinking coach, someone who isn’t afraid of making the tough calls. In December, he was nominated for League Two manager of the month award.

With the transfer window still open, Colchester yet have the chance to make a few more additions to their squad and further enhance the quality of the team.

For upcoming games, Colchester will be hosting Carlisle United this weekend where they hope to come off victorious against an in-form team. With their remarkable performance and results in recent times, Colchester is confident of overcoming any team in their way.
