The game kicks-off.
Kem could face Bantams
Colchester captain Kem Izzet should be fit for the FA Cup clash with Bradford.
The midfielder has been receiving treatment after taking a kick to the shin against Leyton Orient on Tuesday but is expected to be available.
But defender Magnus Okuonghae (ankle) and winger Anthony Wordsworth (hamstring) are rated doubtful.
Loanees Tommy Williams, David Mooney and Liam Henderson all have permission to play in the competition.
Striker Steven Gillespie remains on the sidelines with a thigh injury and John-Joe O'Toole and Morten Knudsen are long-term absentees with knee injuries and not expected back until the new year.
Lee Beevers, Ian Henderson, Pat Baldwin and Marc Tierney could be involved if boss John Ward opts to make changes.
Lee Hendrie remains doubtful for Bradford due to a hamstring problem.
The former Aston Villa midfielder missed the midweek win at Bury and could face a late fitness test.
But manager Peter Taylor has been given permission to play all three of his loan players in the first-round clash, so Tom Adeyemi (Norwich), Louis Moult (Stoke) and Jason Price (Carlisle) are expected to feature.
Striker James Hanson was cleared to play at Bury after having the red card he received against Oxford on Saturday rescinded, but Taylor may be tempted to rest him and give Moult a rare start.
Another striker, Gareth Evans, returned to the substitutes' bench on Tuesday wearing a soft cast to protect his broken wrist and he is expected to keep his place in the squad.
Shane Duff (Achilles), Michael Flynn (hernia) and Simon Ramsden (calf) remain sidelined.
Mooney shines for Us
A brace from David Mooney helped Colchester see off Bradford in a thrilling FA Cup tie which ended 4-3.
Colchester took the lead after five minutes when Andrew Bond struck home from 15 yards, after Mooney had picked him out from Kayode Odejayi's pass.
But Bradford were back on level terms less than two minutes later through James Hanson, who finished well from Louis Moult's assist.
The U's regained their lead in the 19th minute when Mooney superbly lifted a first-time shot past keeper Lenny Pidgeley from a tight angle, following Odejayi's pass.
However, the Bantams equalised again after David Syers nodded Luke O'Brien's long free-kick past keeper Ben Williams.
Colchester regained their lead nine minutes after the break through Brian Wilson, who curled home a low free-kick from the edge of the area.
Mooney struck home his second of the match with 25 minutes to go from the spot after Luke Oliver had fouled Matt Heath in the area.
Hanson headed in Tom Adeyemi's cross with 11 minutes to go but it was not enough for the Bantams.
