Bond blow for Robins
Colchester midfielder Andy Bond is set to miss the home clash with Notts County.
Bond had to go off at half-time during last Saturday's goalless draw against Oldham after suffering a knee injury.
Lloyd James came on to replace Bond and is in line to start against County.
Centre-half Pat Baldwin (foot) and winger Simon Hackney (back) remain doubts while left-back Marc Tierney is continuing his recovery from a dislocated shoulder.
Defender Morten Knudsen and midfielder John-Joe O'Toole are still missing with long-term knee injuries.
Boss John Ward may shake up his attack following three games without a goal so Ian Henderson, Liam Henderson, Kayode Odejayi and Steve Gillespie could all come into the frame.
Neal Bishop is out of Notts County`s trip.
The midfielder suffered medial knee ligament damage against Plymouth last weekend on his return from a one-match suspension. He was forced off after an hour of the 2-0 victory at Meadow Lane.
It was originally feared Bishop could be out for up to six weeks but it is now hoped his absence will only be around a fortnight.
Lee Hughes is fit despite his recent hip problems and should retain his place in the side. However, fellow forward Ben Burgess and defender Stephen Hunt remain sidelined with calf and hamstring injuries respectively.
On-loan Blackburn midfielder Alan Judge completes a three-match suspension.
Striker back on song for United
Kayode Odejayi scored his first goals in nearly eight months as Colchester United came from behind to beat Notts County 2-1.
The Magpies dominated the first half and took the lead in the eighth minute through Craig Westcarr, who stabbed home inside the area from Karl Hawley's pass.
Craig Short's men almost doubled their lead eight minutes later when Ben Davies fired straight at goalkeeper Ben Williams and John Spicer sidefooted wastefully wide following Hawley's cross, as the visitors threatened.
The Us did go close through David Perkins' low shot before the break, but the Magpies came close just after half-time through Hawley.
But with 15 minutes to go, substitute Odejayi glanced in Tom Williams' free-kick from close range.
And eight minutes later, Odejayi nodded in another Williams cross to score his second of the game and secure Colchester their second home win of the season.
