Colchester vs Swindon preview
Last Updated: 02/11/18 12:43pm
Colchester could rotate their goalkeepers against Swindon and bring Dillon Barnes back into the starting line-up.
Barnes started the first 14 games of the season between the posts but Rene Gilmartin has taken over the gloves for the last four matches and U's head coach John McGreal said the experienced stopper is not guaranteed his place.
Sammie Szmodics could also make a return in League Two after missing the previous three matches. Szmodics missed the matches because of a leg injury picked up in training.
Swindon Town will be without Kaiyne Woolery again after the striker suffered a fresh injury. Woolery had just recovered from a long lay-off after he tore his meniscus and has injured a different part of his knee in a new injury.
Five players were changed for the match against Notts County, and the players could be brought back into the side. Keshi Anderson, Elijah Adebayo and Toumani Diagouraga had all been regular first team players before they were absent in the previous game, but could be set to return.
After four successive home victories against Swindon in all competitions between March 2006 and February 2011 - Colchester are winless in each of their last six (D2 L4).
Swindon Town failed to score on their last visit to Colchester having scored in each of their six previous trips in all competitions - they haven't failed to find the back of the net in back to back away games against Colchester since February 1984 (3 games).
Colchester United have kept five clean sheets in their last nine home league games (W6 D1 L2), conceding just six goals in total during this period.
Swindon will be looking to win back to back league games for the first time this season following their 2-1 victory over Notts County last time out.
Swindon (12) have won more points from losing positions than any other League Two side so far this campaign.
