Plymouth boss Peter Reid will have Yala Bolasie back in his squad for the home clash against Colchester.

The pacy winger has missed the last three games following his sending-off against Yeovil on February 1 due to an off-the-ball incident, but is likely to go straight back into the starting line-up against the Us.

Teenage midfielder Luke Young, who made his debut for the club during Tuesday night's 4-0 defeat at Brighton on his 18th birthday, could drop to the bench.

Karl Duguid and Rory Fallon will both be hoping for recalls following their substitute appearances in midweek, and Duguid could replace Kari Arnason, who is now just one booking away from a two-match ban.

Defender Onismor Bhasera is continuing his rehabilitation from a knee problem and is unlikely to be involved as the Pilgrims look to end a run of six successive league defeats.

Steven Gillespie returns to the Colchester squad.

The striker, who scored four goals in his last six outings, has been sidelined for a fortnight with a hamstring injury but proved his fitness with a 60-minute run-out in a practice match this week.

Midfielder John-Joe O'Toole also played for an hour, his first match action in 10 months following a cruciate injury, but he needs to build up his fitness before a first-team return.

Pat Baldwin looks set to miss out again with an Achilles problem, while fellow defenders Magnus Okuonghae and Brian Wilson are still recovering from ankle injuries.

The Us have not won on the road since October but managed a battling 1-1 draw at Peterborough on Tuesday night.
