CA­SU­ALTY WARD AT THE U’S

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

COLCH­ESTER de­fender Ge­orge Elokobi ad­mits he has never seen an in­jury cri­sis like the one cur­rently crip­pling the U’s.

Elokobi, 31, has more than a dozen team-mates out in­jured but called on his fully-fit squad mem­bers to fo­cus on their re­main­ing fix­tures.

“When you go into (the physio’s) room, there are a lot of bod­ies in there and you think ‘wow, how is this hap­pen­ing?’” he said.

“You can see how dis­ap­pointed they are to be miss­ing out on such a vi­tal stage of the sea­son. It just shows that any­thing can hap­pen in foot­ball and the boys that are fit have to do the busi­ness.”
