Colchester United are hoping to give their fans something to cheer about in their derby clash with Ipswich Town.

The Essex side face their East Anglian rivals at Layer Road this Saturday in a match which could see them relegated.

U's boss Geraint Williams told BBC Essex: "We know we haven't given the fans enough."

"So we want to make sure that we go out against Ipswich very positive, give a good performance and give them the win that we all want."

The game will be the last time the two sides meet at Layer Road, as the U's move to their new Cuckoo Farm stadium next season and Williams is determined to give the ground a fitting send-off.

He said: "We've got to make sure that we do the old stadium some justice. There's been some great moments here and perhaps we can squeeze one or two more out before the end of the season."
