Colchester will once again check on Kevin Lisbie ahead of the home clash with Oldham.

The on-loan Ipswich striker has missed the last four games due to a niggling thigh problem and a late decision will be made on him.

Right-back Christian Ribeiro has also been sidelined since last month with a groin injury and remains a doubt, so John White should keep his place.

Centre-half Paul Reid could return to the squad after a calf injury but fellow defender Lee Beevers, who recently recovered from a long-term shoulder injury, has picked up a knee problem in training.

Winger Ashley Vincent is pushing for a place in the squad after his long spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

Oldham boss Dave Penney does not anticipate making any changes to his side.

The relegation-threatened Latics beat Walsall 1-0 in their last outing and winger Chris Taylor and striker Pawel Abbott again look set to start following their return from injury.

There has been only one change in the last three matches, with Taylor starting in place of Danny Whitaker against the Saddlers last weekend.

And with no new injuries reported this week, the Latics will look to keep a settled line-up as they brace themselves for a tough run of games.

After the trip to Colchester, Oldham face Leeds away and Norwich at home.

The Colchester game is likely to come too soon for midfielder Jon Worthington, who has been sidelined since October with ankle ligament damage.
