Colchester will hope to have forward Luke Norris available when they look to cause another upset in the FA Cup first round against Coventry.
The U’s, who will play Manchester United at Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup after overcoming Tottenham and Crystal Palace, could be without their top scorer Norris.
The six-goal forward was forced off against Crawley with a groin problem and subsequently missed their 3-2 win at Mansfield last weekend.
John McGreal could opt to recall Theo Robinson after the forward served a three-match ban, while winger Callum Harriott is set to keep his place after impressing at the One Call Stadium.
Coventry will be without French striker Maxime Biamou for the trip to the JobServe Community Stadium.
Biamou begins a three-match ban after being sent off against Accrington last weekend, and underlined how hard his absence is likely to be felt by the Sky Blues by scoring a hat-trick against Southampton Under-21s in the Leasing.com Trophy in midweek.
Wesley Jobello is out for the rest of the season after knee surgery, while Jodi Jones is making his own recovery from a cruciate knee ligament injury he suffered last December.
Jordy Hiwula has missed the last three games with an ankle injury and Matt Godden may require surgery on a pelvic bone issue, but Fankaty Dabo is available after serving a one-game suspension.
