Dunne's crocks back in hunt
Colchester boss Joe Dunne is hoping his severe injury problems ease for the visit of Walsall.
Forwards Gavin Massey (hamstring) and Clinton Morrison (facial infection), midfielder Tosin Olufemi (thigh) and defender Ryan Dickson (illness) are in contention to return against the Saddlers.
Daniel Pappoe is also back in the fold having completed his three-match suspension for the red card received at Bradford.
Dunne still remains without Sanchez Watt (thigh), Drey Wright (knee), Mark Cousins (foot), Josh Thompson, Tom Eastman (both ankle) and Mason Spence (hamstring).
Walsall will be without Milan Lalkovic as they look to get back to winning ways.
The forward is away on international duty with Slovakia's Under-21 squad and so misses out as the Saddlers aim to end a three-match winless run.
Romaine Sawyers, James Baxendale and Ashley Hemmings are each competing to replace Lalkovic, having impressed off the bench in the second half of last weekend's 2-0 home defeat to Bradford.
Otherwise, boss Dean Smith, who this week penned a new one-year contract extension, boasts a fully-fit squad at the West Homes Community Stadium.
