COLCHESTER United boss Geraint Williams is set to ring the changes for tonight's Championship encounter at Sheffield Wednesday.
The U's have been fortunate with the lack of injuries and suspensions this term, although that in turn has meant that most of Williams' side have already played more than 30 games.
Squad players like Hogan Ephraim, Jamie Guy, Johnnie Jackson, John White and George Elokobi are all itching for a start, and several of these are likely to be given the nod at Hillsborough this evening.

“I might make a few changes, especially as we are in the middle of three games in six days,” revealed Williams last night.
The U's have been installed in the top 10 for more than three months, and they will be looking to cement their 10th spot in south Yorkshire.

Tonight's hosts Wednesday are one of a few clubs trying to chase down the U's and break into the top 10 themselves, along with Crystal Palace and Plymouth.
Skipper Karl Duguid, strikers Jamie Cureton and Chris Iwelumo, midfielders Kem Izzet and Kevin Watson, and defenders Wayne Brown and Chris Barker have all made more than 30 appearances this term.
The Owls are four points behind the U's, and have not beaten the Essex club in their last five meetings.
Previous manager Paul Sturrock departed after the 4-0 defeat last October.
