NEW Ipswich Town star Ivan Campo is set to be involved in some part of tonight's East Anglian derby against Colchester United at Portman Road.

After Saturday's pretty dreadful display in the home 2-0 defeat by Wolverhampton in the Coca-Cola Championship, boss Jim Magilton has put every place up for grabs tonight.

“I plan to shake the side up,” said Magilton, who was not slow in criticising his players after the Wolves game.

Campo is earmarked to play in front of the back four, with the likes of Shane Supple, Chris Casement, Owen Garvan, Alan Quinn, Liam Trotter and Pablo Counago expected to start tonight.

Despite hobbling off on Saturday, Danny Haynes should be fit for consideration, but David Wright is still struggling to fully overcome an ankle problem.

Alex Bruce starts a three-match suspension and Richard Naylor may be one of the players left out as tonight would be his fourth game in a fortnight after an 18-month injury absence.

“Beating Leyton Orient in the previous round of the Carling Cup perked us up before our Championship win at Burnley,” added Magilton.

“Hopefully a good result against Colchester will do the same for our trip to Watford at the weekend.

“My players showed their intent against Orient, and I will be looking for the same tonight. We must make the most of two home draws in the competition.

“But it won't be easy with George Williams one of the best managers in all four divisions.”
