Colchester have no new selection issues ahead of Swindon's visit as Joe Dunne's side look to continue their winning run.

The U's recovered from a nine-match losing run to record back-to-back victories in their last two outings, ensuring they head into the game with the in-form Robins full of confidence.

The only absentee in the United side remains midfielder Kem Izzet, who continues to struggle with an ankle injury.

At the weekend the manager handed starts to George Porter and Freddie Sears and the latter responded by netting from the penalty spot in the 3-2 win.

Dropped duo Marcus Bean and Drey Wright both came off the bench in the second half and are looking to reclaim their place in the starting line-up should Dunne choose to freshen things up.

Swindon are down to the bare bones with a string of players unavailable for a side unbeaten in nine.

Troy Archibald-Henville (knee), Joe Devera and Miles Storey (both hamstring) missed the 1-1 draw at Crawley and will be unavailable once more, while Louis Thompson has a niggling injury.

Aaron Oakley is on international duty with Wales Under-21s while striker Paul Benson has moved to Cheltenham on loan and fellow forward Chris Martin is back at Norwich after his stay came to an end.

Manager Paolo Di Canio will not include Luke Rooney, whose move to Cheltenham failed to go through on deadline day in his matchday squad.

The Robins chief could name just six substitutes at Crawley and with four of those now unavailable the Italian is very short of resources.
