THE big games just keep on coming for Colchester United.

And their home game against Swindon Town tomorrow night is arguably the biggest of the lot.

The U’s will go into the match on the back of an impressive 15-match unbeaten run in League Two.

But their clash with the league leaders at the JobServe Community Stadium is a chance to really affirm their promotion credentials.

The visit of Swindon will arguably be the toughest threat the U’s have faced to their long unbeaten run.

The Robins will undoubtedly be tough opponents; they are two points clear at the top of the table, boast the best goal difference in the division and are the leading scorers in the division.

Richie Wellens’ side were comfortable 3-0 winners over Port Vale at the weekend but their recent form prior to that has been somewhat mixed.

They were beaten 2-0 at Newport County in their last league away game and at the end of last month, lost by the same score at Port Vale.

Indeed, Colchester have already beaten Swindon twice this season – on both occasions, by 3-0 scorelines.

After six draws in their last seven matches, much is now inevitably being made about Colchester’s recent stalemates.

So much so, that the true worth of their goal-less draw at high-flying Exeter City might well be underestimated.

The fact that the U’s have drawn so many of their recent matches in League Two is inescapable.

But it is not their performances and results against fellow promotion chasers Exeter and Bradford City that they could potentially look back on with regret.

Rather, it is their inability to beat strugglers Stevenage and Morecambe in recent weeks that they might rue; not holding the division’s second-placed team, a side who themselves are now unbeaten in 11 league matches and with the best defensive record in the country.

Colchester are proving extremely hard to beat at present.

If they can combine that resistance into goals at the other end of the pitch, there is no reason why John McGreal’s side cannot make it a hat-trick of wins over the current league leaders, tomorrow night.
