The FA Cup bid continues this weekend but will it be a win or a loss?

Then again, which is more than possible of course, it could be a draw….cast your vote so we know if you think it’ll be all smiles or disappointment (perhaps a case of meh) come the full time whistle!

Colchester face a third round tie against Charlton at the Weston Homes Community Stadium in a game that will kick-off at 3pm on Saturday.

If Colchester can cause an upset against Championship side Charlton, who are battling relegation a division higher than the U’s, it could be the kick-start needed for Kevin Keen’s side. In the only previously FA Cup tie the Addicks won, over 30-years ago.

The full third round fixtures are.
