BARROW AFC manager Pete Wild is hoping Colchester United aren’t too well rested when they come to Holker Street tomorrow.

The Bluebirds have themselves recently come back fresh to the fight following two consecutive weekend matches being postponed due to the weather.

Wild’s men were firing on all cylinders when they claimed a 2-0 home win against Gillingham in midweek.

Tomorrow’s opponents haven’t had a game for 11 days after one of their clashed was called off due to the weather.

And Wild hopes that United aren’t too well rested or prepared.

He told The Mail: “I think that sometimes having games called off can give you time to tidy things up tactically.

“It allows you to get ready for what is coming next and you forget what happened however many days ago, and you come in fresh faced and fresh minded.

“That may be the case for Colchester when they come to us tomorrow, but we know where we have to be, and that we have to replicate what we did on Tuesday night.

“The players were excellent as a squad on Tuesday night, and it's really important that they are excellent with their levels on Saturday,  and that we are really focusing on us and what we do well.”
