Football: McAteer to start role; TRANMERE v COLCHESTER TODAY, 3PM.
The poor run of form cost assistant manager Richard Hill his job on Thursday, five months into an extended two-year contract.
McAteer is to continue his playing duties but the 34-year-old former Liverpool midfielder is liable to be on the sidelines for at least another month with a knee ligament injury.
Little has signalled his intention to name the same line-up from midweek with 20-year-old midfielder Stephen O'Leary, signed on a month's loan from Luton Town yesterday, set to start on the bench.
And the manager is predicting a difficult test.
Little said: "Colchester play a system away from home that suits them. They have been operating with just one striker and it works well."
Colchester's towering midfielder Greg Holford is confident of a positive result this afternoon. He says: "Tranmere have been poor at home and we have been great away so we will be disappointed not to get something out of the game
