ELOKOBI’S IN NEED OF A REST
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.”
