The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

ALTHOUGH El­liott Hewitt has been ply­ing his trade at right-back this sea­son, Colch­ester United boss Tony Humes sees a more at­tack­ing role in store.

The U’s have ex­tended Hewitt’s loan from Ipswich by a month – mean­ing the 20year-old will stay at the club un­til mid-Jan­uary.

And Humes wants to make the most of the Welsh­man’s ag­gres­sive instincts dur­ing that time.

“Play­ing El­liott a lit­tle bit more ad­vanced is some­thing that we’ve looked at,” said Humes.

“He’s a very at­tack-minded player and it’s some­thing that we would con­sider.

“He still has a lot of learn­ing to do but he’s im­prov­ing the de­fen­sive side of his game week by week.”
