Colchester United boss Joe Dunne might choose to freshen up his squad, after selecting the same side for the last three games, at MK Dons this afternoon.

Winger Sanchez Watt is pushing for a first start in four months, after a couple of substitute outings, while Ryan Dickson and Clinton Morrison might also be recalled.

Jabo Ibehre faces a late fitness test on his troublesome hip, while fellow front-runner Freddie Sears should be on the bench after a long struggle to shake off a hamstring injury.

MK Dons will welcome back key midfielder, Stephen Gleeson, who missed Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at new leaders Brentford due to a one-match suspension.

The U’s will still be without the injured trio of Gavin Massey, Drey Wright and Josh Thompson.
