Colchester United will welcome back two of their first team regulars for tonight’s trip to injury-hit Notts County.

Skipper Magnus Okuonghae returns to the fold, after serving his one-match suspension at Bristol City last weekend.

Okuonghae, who was sent off in the Capital One Cup defeat at Charlton, is set to resume his partnership with Tom Eastman in the heart of defence, with teenager Frankie Kent returning to the bench, despite the teenager’s impressive full debut in Saturday’s 2-1 reverse at Ashton Gate.

Craig Eastmond is also back in Joe Dunne’s squad, after a recent ankle injury. Eastmond is likely to be on the bench.

Notts County have a glut of injuries, forcing manager Shaun Derry to register himself as a player yesterday. The 36-year-old could feature against the U’s.
