Colchester will continue to be without suspended defender Cohen Bramall for their Sky Bet League Two game against Northampton.
Bramall serves the final match of his three-game ban after being sent off during his side’s 3-0 win over Swindon.
Ryan Clampin should again deputise at left-back as the U’s look to earn their first league win of the campaign.
Paris Cowan-Hall has continued to build up his fitness following an Achilles injury but is expected to miss out once more.
On-loan Scott Wharton is a doubt for Northampton.
Wharton picked up a knock during the Cobblers’ 1-0 win over Swindon on Tuesday and manager Keith Curle is expected to make a late call on the defender.
Reece Hall-Johnson will also be monitored before the game, while Alan McCormack has returned to outdoor training but is not ready to return.
Joe Martin and Steve Arnold remain sidelined.
