Colchester United travel to Norwich with their Championship status all but confirmed.
Norwich, who salvaged a late 1-1 draw at Layer Road in December, sit precariously above the drop zone in eighteenth place.
The U's will be hoping to get the three points against ex-U's striker Jamie Cureton, who controversially returned to Carrow Road in the summer, and at the same time haul City back into a relegation fight.
New Signing Maceo Rigters is set to start for the home side, after signing on Wednesday.
Darel Russell (suspension) and Matty Pattison could feature, along with Darren Huckerby.

Rigters, who has joined on loan from Blackburn, topped the scoring charts at last summers U-21 Championship. The Dutchman will be looking to make a bright start to his Canaries career.
U's boss Geraint Williams has been handed a fresh injury blow ahead of tomorrows game, as skipper Karl Duguid (knee) misses out.
