Dobra Nets Twice for U23s But Colchester Grab Late Leveller
Tuesday, 26th Jan 2021 14:49
Armando Dobra scored twice for Town's U23s but Colchester United netted an injury time leveller to grab a 2-2 draw with the table-topping Blues at Playford Road this afternoon.
The visitors took the lead in the 22nd minute but Albanian U21 international Dobra equalised eight minutes later.
The 19-year-old, who might well have been looking to impress any watching scouts ahead of a possible loan move with Bolton having shown interest earlier in the month, made it 2-0 on the hour.
Town looked set to claim all three points until the dying moments when the visitors levelled.
Also in action in a strong U23s side were Idris El Mizouni, Brett McGavin, Jack Lankester and Liam Gibbs.
The U23s, who are coached by Kieron Dyer and Terry Butcher, are now three points ahead at the top of Professional Development League Two South but with second-placed Bristol City in action in away against Swansea in one of two games they have in hand on the Blues this evening.
Town: White, Crowe, McGavin, Andoh, Smith, Lankester, El Mizouni, Gibbs, Crane, Simpson, Dobra. Subs: Ridd, Healy, K Brown, Z Brown, Oppong.

Power of Motivation by LegendRay
The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
