New forward unlikely after U's receive Watt boost

Essex County Standard: On the mend - Sanchez Watt has received good news after seeing a specialist on his quad injury. On the mend - Sanchez Watt has received good news after seeing a specialist on his quad injury.

Colchester United manager Joe Dunne says he is unlikely to sign a new forward before the emergency loan window closes today.

The U’s boss had hinted after their 4-2 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers that he had been talking to a club about bringing in a new striker.

But Dunne said those negotiations ended after the club in question decided to keep their player.

And he admitted the quest to sign a new attacker was not as urgent, after the U’s received good news on Sanchez Watt’s quad injury.

Dunne said: “We’ve probably missed out on the one we were going for.

“The club concerned are going to keep hold of him, I think."

That's a very optimistic call Joe, given Watt's poor muscle injury recovery history to-date.
