Colchester midfielder Andy Bond is set to miss the home clash with Notts County.

Bond had to go off at half-time during last Saturday's goalless draw against Oldham after suffering a knee injury.

Lloyd James came on to replace Bond and is in line to start against County.

Centre-half Pat Baldwin (foot) and winger Simon Hackney (back) remain doubts while left-back Marc Tierney is continuing his recovery from a dislocated shoulder.

Defender Morten Knudsen and midfielder John-Joe O'Toole are still missing with long-term knee injuries.

Boss John Ward may shake up his attack following three games without a goal so Ian Henderson, Liam Henderson, Kayode Odejayi and Steve Gillespie could all come into the frame.

Neal Bishop is out of Notts County`s trip.

The midfielder suffered medial knee ligament damage against Plymouth last weekend on his return from a one-match suspension. He was forced off after an hour of the 2-0 victory at Meadow Lane.

It was originally feared Bishop could be out for up to six weeks but it is now hoped his absence will only be around a fortnight.

Lee Hughes is fit despite his recent hip problems and should retain his place in the side. However, fellow forward Ben Burgess and defender Stephen Hunt remain sidelined with calf and hamstring injuries respectively.

On-loan Blackburn midfielder Alan Judge completes a three-match suspension.
