Swindon v The U's

Swindon v The U's

2nd October 2012

County Ground

Swindon are unbeaten in five so Colchester (who won for the first time this season in Joe Dunne's first game as manager at the weekend) will need to be at their very best on Tuesday night at The County Ground.

Tommy Miller, Gary Roberts, Alan Navarro, Adam Rooney and Paul Benson are all pushing for recalls to the Swindon starting XI but without any fresh injuries or suspensions to contend with Paulo Di Canio may opt to stick and not twist!

Colchester expect to have Mark Cousins (finger) fit to "play through the pain barrier". The U's keeper dislocated his index finger and needed to have half time stitches put into a wound, all of which happened when his hand connected with the crossbar in the weekend win against Hartlepool.

No changes are expected with weekend debutants Jabo Ibehre (who scored twice), Craig Eastmond and Sanchez Watt all likely to retain their places.
