Match Preview

U's concern over Ibehre injury Colchester could be without Jabo Ibehre once again when they host Bradford. The U's top-scorer has been hampered by pelvic and hamstring problems over recent weeks and boss Joe Dunne admitted he may need to bring a loanee in as a replacement for the big striker. Alex Gibley (hamstring) is close to a return to first-team action having not featured since December while fellow midfielder, and long-term absentee, Drey Wright (knee) could also feature sooner rather than later. Freddie Sears grabbed his first U's goal in six games during Saturday's 2-1 defeat of Coventry and should partner Clinton Morrison up front in the continued absence of Ibehre. Bradford pair James Hanson and Andrew Davies are both struggling to shake off injury in time for the game. Striker Hanson missed the weekend defeat at Brentford due to a groin strain and Davies was sidelined with the back-related calf problem that forced him out of the previous week's loss to Stevenage. On-loan Leeds defender Adam Drury could make his first start for the club. He stepped off the substitutes' bench in the closing stages at Brentford after joining City on Friday. Phil Parkinson's side are chasing their first league success on the road since a 2-1 win at MK Dons in November.
