Steven Gillespie is Colchester United's record signing

Colchester United striker Steven Gillespie will need an operation this week on the arm fracture he picked up in Good Friday's draw at Brentford.

The 25-year-old has scored nine goals in 19 games this campaign after an injury-hit start to the season.

Manager John Ward told BBC Essex: "Steven's going to have to have an operation. There's a fracture in there obviously, it's not healed very well.

"He's going to go into the summer with a plaster on his arm."
