Colchester United boss, John McGreal, looks set to make just one change to the side that leapfrogged Lincoln City in the League Two table thanks to a 1-0 home win over the Imps on Tuesday.

Central midfielder Doug Loft is a definite non-starter, after damaging his shoulder early on in that match, so his first-half replacement, Brandon Comley, will start at Notts County tomorrow afternoon.

“Doug looks set to be out for three or four weeks, because of a slight tear in his bicep,” revealed McGreal.

“He did the injury early on, and it gave way and collapsed under him while he was trying to protect himself (in a fall). It’s a shame for Doug, because he has waited a long time to get his Colchester career going and we have had a lot of trust in him, adapting his training.

“That’s something I have learnt as a manager, having to adjust training for different players of different ages.
