Weston Homes Community Stadium
Colchester United host Millwall tonight looking for their first victory at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
Recently appointed U's boss Paul Lambert will be looking to build on Saturday's hard-fought win over Stockport County. The ex-Celtic midfielder will be hopeful of breaking the U's poor home run at the WHCS.
The Lions, who currently lie in 3rd place in League One, following Saturday's win over Leeds United.
Lambert: I Just Want To Win At Home
He said: 'I just want to win at home now.
'The fans who came to watch us at Stockport were terrific and I`m sure they will get right behind us again tonight.
'What has happened in previous games happened when I had no control over things.
'I couldn`t influence what had happened at home or away.
'But the pitch is still the same size as it is away from home.
'The more people talk about it (the home record), the more people actually want to believe it.
'My view is that it`s a fresh start and we`ll do our utmost to try and win as many games as we can.'
Chris Coyne and Medy Elito return to the U's squad after being rested at the weekend.
However, Lambert is likely to name an unchanged side from the win at Stockport.
Perkins, 26, has impressed U's fans with a number of notable performances, since signing from Rochdale in the summer.
The lively midfielder, who has struck three away goals in a U's shirt so far, will be looking to get his first goal at home.
Tresor Kandol and Jermaine Easter are available once more after missing out at the weekend.
The Lions are without Gary Alexander (ankle), but Chris Hackett will return.
Harris, 31, netted a classy double against Leeds, on Saturday, and will be looking to strike once more.

StevieG Col U's prediction: A 3-1 U's win!
The U's entertain Carlisle United on Saturday day, while the Lions face a tough trip to Scunthorpe United.
