Colchester United have named a freshly boosted squad for Saturday’s game with Gillingham.
New duo Morten Knudsen and Christian Ribeiro both make the U’s squad and are available at the Priestfields Stadium.
Vital midfielder John-Joe O’Toole also returns following a suspension and looks likely to make his first appearance since signing permanently. Hernia-victim Paul Reid is another available after missing out last weekend.
