Match Preview

Grounds touch-and-go for Spireites Chesterfield will check on Jonathan Grounds ahead of the visit of Colchester. The defender, who extended his loan spell from Middlesbrough this week, is nursing an ankle injury so Dean Holden is on stand-by. Dean Morgan will be hoping he gets the nod to start for the first time since August 16. The left-sided forward, whose professional career began at Colchester 11 years ago, has been out since the start of the month with a groin problem but impressed during a short substitute appearance in the defeat at Charlton last weekend. Should Morgan be selected, on-loan midfielder Lee Johnson could be dropped. Danny Whitaker may also move from the left into the centre of midfield. Nathan Smith will play his final game before linking up with the Jamaica squad. The left-back will then miss the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at Notts County and the league trip to local rivals Sheffield Wednesday. Colchester will make a late decision on Steven Gillespie. The striker was unavailable for last weekend's 1-0 win over Walsall with a hamstring injury but has progressed well with his recovery this week and will hope to be involved in John Ward's matchday 16. Goalkeeper Mark Cousins continues to miss out having sustained a shoulder injury in training last Friday morning, meaning Ben Williams will make his second start of the season after stepping in against the Saddlers. Midfielder John-Joe O'Toole serves the final match of his three-game suspension. Winger Ashley Vincent returned to full training this week after just over six weeks on the sidelines with damaged knee ligaments, but the game comes too soon for him as he continues to build up his match fitness. Last weekend's victory over Walsall ended a run of five games with a win for the U's, who last came up against Saturday's opponents Chesterfield in April 2006.

Match Report

U's cling on to topple Spireites Michail Antonio's first-half strike was enough to secure Colchester a 1-0 win that sent Chesterfield crashing to their first home defeat since mid-August. Leon Clarke struck a post for the home side, but Colchester defended well to claim their second away league win of the season. Chesterfield started well with Alex Mendy and Clarke unsettling Colchester's defence, but the visitors worked their way into the game and went in front in the 30th minute. A corner was only half cleared and when the ball broke to Antonio, he drove it low through a crowd of players and past Spireites goalkeeper Greg Fleming from 15 yards. The home side almost equalised early in the second half when Mendy cut in from the right and beat two defenders, but visiting goalkeeper Ben Williams turned his shot around the post, while Anthony Wordsworth tested Fleming with a 25-yard shot and Clarke turned Nathan Smith's low cross on to the woodwork. Chesterfield had strong claims for a penalty waved away when Clarke was challenged from behind and the striker saw a shot flash wide in stoppage time as Colchester held on.
