Colchester could well be without former Chelsea youngster Ben Gordon for our FA Cup third round meeting with Cardiff.

An ankle injury towards the end of our nil-nil draw with Crawley on Sunday afternoon, a game we should have won as we were denied by the woodwork on three occasions, ended with Gordon ‘limping out’ of the league 1 game.

This could mean that Gordon, who has worked himself back into favour under Tony Humes and started the last three games, could miss our trip to the Cardiff City Stadium on Friday as we look to cause an FA Cup upset.

Humes has told the Gazette that he’s hopeful that his injury isn’t too serious but he’ll have to ‘see how he is’ for that cup-tie.

He said: ‘Hopefully, Ben’s injury isn’t too bad.

‘He rolled his ankle at the end, so we’ll see how he is for Friday.’

The U’s manager also went onto praise Gordon for the way in which he’s gone about things when he wasn’t in the side praising the fact that he didn’t ‘sulk but he showed that he’s a good pro’ and got on with it, insisting that he was ‘always part of his plans’ with it down to him and Sean Clohessy to battle it out for the place in the side.
