Frankie Kent is on the comeback trail and available to bolster Colchester United's defence, if required, for Friday afternoon's home clash with league leaders Luton Town.

Centre-half Kent has sat out the U’s last two games, the 0-0 away draw at Morecambe and last Saturday’s 1-0 win at Stevenage, due to a knee injury which he aggravated during the warm-up at Morecambe’s Globe Arena last Tuesday week.

“Frankie has come through training well this week,” revealed U’s boss John McGreal following this morning’s training session.

“He’s had a good few days training, since going down at Morecambe.

“So I have one or two options, which gives me food for thought, going into the game against the league leaders,” added McGreal.

The U’s operated with a flat back four for the two recent away games, helping to achieve a four-point haul, but the U’s boss could recall Kent and switch to a three-man defence against the Hatters.
