COLCHESTER UNITED - WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS
United signed Izale McLeod on loan from Charlton late on Friday, many sites have missed this, he will certainly give them a lot more threat up front, but might take a little time to settle in, having started few matches this season.
Wolves got a vital win at Palace last week and with a very winnable home game on tuesday, could get right back into the promotion hunt with a victory today. Ignore what you might read elsewhere, keeper Wayne Hennessey is a certain starter and they are set to stay with the 4-5-1 formation, which seems to suit them much better and the players are far happier with now, than in the opening 10 minutes at Cardiff, in the FA Cup.
Colchester have some defensive problems and will also be forced to name their goalkeeping coach, who is pushing 40 and couldn't get in the Brentford team four years ago, in the squad.
Have to side with the visitors.
