Colchester United Vs Milton Keynes Dons, Tue 26 Jan 2010

Colchester could be unchanged for the visit of MK Dons after getting back on track with a goalless draw at Gillingham on Saturday.

The Us had leaked 12 goals in two previous heavy defeats and boss Aidy Boothroyd was encouraged by their response as well as a welcome clean sheet.

Christian Ribeiro made his debut at right-back and Paul Reid was restored to the centre of defence after a hernia op, and both should keep their places.

Striker Ian Henderson will miss out as he serves the second game of his three-match ban for his sending-off against Norwich.

Winger Ashley Vincent is close to returning after a long lay-off with ankle injury but the Dons clash will come too soon.

MK Dons could hand a first start of the season to Jude Stirling.

The popular utility man was sidelined until the start of the year with a niggling groin injury but after a handful of substitute appearances, he could come in at right-back as Dan Woodards is a doubt.

Woodards was forced out of the 1-0 win over Tranmere on Saturday with a groin strain and he will be assessed nearer to kick-off.

Fellow defender Mat Doumbe is also carrying a groin injury and may be left out as Paul Ince`s side play their third game in six days.

Ince may make changes after accusing his side of complacency against Tranmere but defender Sean O`Hanlon (knee) remains a long-term absentee.
