LAPSLIE IS PLAY­ING PA­TIENCE

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

COLCH­ESTER UNITED star­let Tom Lapslie is tak­ing no chances in his re­cov­ery from an an­kle in­jury, but hopes to re­turn soon to boost the U’s league cam­paign.

Lapslie, 20, in­jured an an­kle in Colch­ester’s 3-2 home de­feat to Black­pool a fort­night ago and has been work­ing hard on the side­line ever since.

“There’s no need for any pro­tec­tion. I’m walk­ing around and try­ing to keep my­self fit by go­ing to the gym,” said the mid­fielder.

“It’s come at a time when I’m in the team and start­ing but it hap­pens in foot­ball. No-one touched me and it wasn’t a tackle – it’s just one of those things.”
