The Colchester United midfield duo of Harry Pell and Tom Lapslie are both back in training, after their respective hamstring injuries.
But fellow midfielder, Brandon Comley, remains sidelined by a knee problem.
Pell has sat out the last couple of matches, after damaging his hamstring during the 3-0 home win over his former club Cheltenham Town three weeks ago, while Lapslie tweaked a sore hamstring during the 1-1 draw at Macclesfield a fortnight ago.
Diaz Wright came in to deputise, alongside Ben Stevenson, during last Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Carlisle, and did a good job, and it could still be that this weekend’s trip to Swindon Town might come a little too soon for both Pell and Lapslie.
A late decision is likely.

“However, Brandon (Comley) is still not ready to join in on the training pitch. A scan has shown no signs of damage, but he’s still not comfortable with it.
