Colchester United travel to Sixfields Stadium tonight, where they will face Northampton Town.

Paul Lambert's U's will be looking to build on Saturday's first home win over Carlisle United.

The Cobblers earned a creditable draw at Leicester City last weekend and Stuart Gray will be looking to add to it.

Northampton Town Team News:

Cobbler's boss Gray has a thread-bare squad due to a number of injuries.

Ex-U's man Luke Guttridge (knee), Colin Larkin (thigh), Adebayo Akinfenwa (calf) and Liam Davis are all absent.

Player to watch: Giles Coke

Coke, 22, is key part of The Cobblers team and will be a danger against the U's.

Colchester United Team News:

U`s chief Lambert will be without Steven Gillespie (hamstring), who limped off against Carlisle.

Defender Paul Reid (foot) is also missing, so Chris Coyne is likely to keep his place.

Player to watch: Mark Yeates

Yeates, 23, scored a first half double at the weekend, to take his season's tally to six goals. The Irish wing-wizard will be threat from free-kicks for the U's as well.

Ref Watch:

Referee: Darren Drysdale - From Lincolnshire.

Assistants: J G Adcock and S C Knapp

Fourth Official: S J Martin

Match Prediction:

StevieG Col U's prediction: A 3-0 U's win!

Next Fixtures:

The U's visit Southend United in the Essex Derby on Saturday, while The Cobblers travel to Walsall.
