Colchester United boss John McGreal looks set to name an unchanged side, for tomorrow’s visit of Port Vale.
The U’s will make a late decision on centre-half Ryan Inniss, who sat out the 3-2 win at Swindon last Friday week due to a shoulder injury.
Inniss returned to training this week and is being assessed, but McGreal could well stick with the starting XI who did so well at the County Ground.
Kyel Reid came in for Inniss against the Robins, with the U’s switching their formation from 3-4-1-2 to a 4-3-3 system, and the Coventry City loanee impressed on the left side.
Striker Kurtis Guthrie, who has effectively been out of action since last February due to an ankle injury, albeit for an unsuccessful attempt at a return in the autumn, is close to being named in the first-team squad.

Guthrie has a good couple of weeks of training under his belt, and so has an outside chance of being on the bench tomorrow, or perhaps for the Boxing Day trip to Crawley.
