CASUALTY WARD AT THE U’S
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.”
