Owen Garvan is hopeful of being passed fit for Colchester United’s home game against Walsall this Saturday.
Influential midfielder Garvan missed last weekend’s 5-0 defeat at Wigan, and then limped off early in the second half on his return on Tuesday night, in the 2-1 home win over Port Vale.
Ex-Ipswich Town favourite Garvan picked up a hip injury.
“Owen (Garvan) has trained this morning,” revealed U’s boss Tony Humes.
“I think he’s still a bit sore, but he should be OK this weekend.”

“He’s going to be OK to resume training next week, but won’t be training for the rest of this week.

“Gavin Massey is showing good signs of improvement (following a calf injury). He’s not as long term as we initially thought.
“It’s been positive for Gavin this week, and hopefully he will start training again next week, with a view to being back in contention for the following weekend (trip to Doncaster),” added Humes.
Centre-half Frankie Kent will return to the squad this weekend, after missing the Vale game through a succession of minor injuries. The centre-half should be on the bench.
