Colchester could welcome back Marc Tierney as they look to kick-start their play-off push against promotion rivals Millwall.

The Us suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Exeter on Good Friday, but only goal difference is keeping them out of the top six in League One.

Tierney travelled with the squad to Devon following his recovery from a groin operation but failed to make the bench, although he has a much better chance of featuring against the Lions.

Ashley Vincent missed some training sessions last week due to illness but should retain his place in the squad after playing the final 10 minutes at St James' Park.

But striker Kayode Odejayi again misses out as he continues to battle back from a foot problem.

Kenny Jackett has a full-strength squad to choose from as he looks to guide Millwall back into the automatic promotion places.

The Lions are just a point behind Swindon, who moved above Jackett's men into second place following a surprise 3-0 win at promotion rivals Leeds on Saturday.

Jackett, who was recently named Coca-Cola League One Manager of the Month for March, could keep faith with the same team after naming an unchanged side for the third successive game in the 1-1 draw against Brentford on Good Friday.

Striker Gary Alexander returned to training last week following his recovery from a long-term heel problem and he will be pushing for a place among the substitutes.
