Cian Bolger: Short loan spell at Colchester

Bolger, 21, arrives at the Weston Homes Community Stadium to provide cover following a raft of injuries while centre-back Matt Taylor has recently returned to Bradford following the completion of his loan stay.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international already boasts Football League experience and could make his debut in Saturday's home clash against high-flying Peterborough.

Bolger started out at Leicester and enjoyed three separate loan spells at Bristol Rovers in which he made a total of 52 appearances before signing for Bolton in the January transfer window this year.

He is yet to appear for the Trotters but has featured heavily for the club's Under-21 Development side.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
