Colchester are sweating on the fitness of Andy Bond after he picked up a knee injury at the weekend.

The in-form midfielder, who has scored four goals this season, had to be withdrawn during Saturday's goalless draw with Oldham following a rash challenge from Dean Furman.

"He's twisted his knee," said U's manager John Ward.

"It looks like he's going to miss a little bit of football at this juncture though and I'll certainly be surprised if he's available next week."
