The New Den
Colchester United travel to Millwall tonight in the first round of the Johnson's Paint Trophy.
The U`s face the Lions on the back of Saturday`s frustrating draw at home to Oldham, while Millwall beat Huddersfield 2-1.
The U`s match against the Lions, at the New Den, is their first in the competition for three years.
Lions midfielder Danny Spiller could return after a long lay-off, while Gary Alexandra is unlikely to play.
Danny Senda and Marcus Bignot (both knee), along with Marc Laird (hamstring) miss out.
Kandol, 27, scored a goal as the Lions beat Huddersfield on Saturday and will be looking to strike again.
The man on loan from Leeds will be a real handful for the U's back-line.
Record-signing Steven Gillespie (hamstring) misses out, as he did against Oldham.
Pat Baldwin is once again in the squad, as he continues to build up his fitness, however, Paul Reid is also unavailable.
David Perkins, Dean Hammond, Medy Elito and Akanni-Sunday Wasiu will all be hoping to start.
U'squad: Gerken, Cousins, Coyne, Baldwin, Ifil, Heath, White, Wordsworth, Hammond, Izzet, Jackson, Perkins, Yeates, Elito, Batchelor, Platt, Wasiu, Vernon.
Yeates, 23, impressed against Oldham on Saturday, with a fine double strike.
The former Tottenham Hotspur winger will be looking to continue where he left off.
Referee: Gavin L Ward - Surrey
Assistants: R Beevor and J G Comley
Fourth Official: G S Evetts
StevieG Col U's prediction: 2-0 U's win!
The U's travel to face Crewe a week on Saturday, while Millwall host Hartlepool this weekend.
