The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

TONY Humes be­lieves Ge­orge Elokobi will re­turn to the force that saw him rise through the ranks in his first stint at Colch­ester United af­ter serv­ing his one-match sus­pen­sion.

For­mer Wolves de­fender Elokobi, 29, who re­turned to Colch­ester af­ter a sev­enyear ab­sence over the sum­mer, missed yesterday’s clash against Gilling­ham af­ter see­ing red in mid­week against Sheffield United.

He strug­gled with a calf in­jury in pre-sea­son and Humes says the mini-break will do him good.

“In some ways it might not do him any harm to have a breather,” Humes said.“It’s dif­fi­cult to get through a year with­out a full pre-sea­son.”
