Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the visit of Colchester.
Captain Grant McCann was restored to the starting XI against Tranmere on Saturday and scored one and made the other so will keep his place in midfield.
Central defender Gabriel Zakuani has recovered from a shoulder injury and will again partner Ryan Bennett.
Midfielder Lee Frecklington is set for an operation on his hernia which will keep him out for another month so Charlie Lee is likely to play alongside McCann.
Striker Dave Hibbert is the only other absentee as he steps up his comeback from a dislocated knee suffered back in November.
A 12th home win of the season could see Posh climb into third place in the npower League One table.
