SOUTHEND United striker Theo Robinson has joined Colchester United on loan until January.

Robinson has appeared in four of Blues' seven games so far this season but was not in the squad for Tuesday night's Carabao Cup clash with MK Dons.

Robinson, who has scored 20 goals in 104 appearances for Blues, also spent the second half of last season on loan in League Two with Swindon Town.

The 30-year-old scored seven goals in 16 games for the Robins.

Robinson also came close to joining Colchester on loan in January 2018.
