Tozer and Turgott in the squad for weekend game.
Loan duo Blair Turgott and Ben Tozer could be in line for their Colchester United debuts on Saturday, as the U's host Notts County.
West Ham winger Blair joined the U's for training this week, whilst Ben has spent the past couple of weeks with Joe Dunne's side after arriving on loan from Northampton Town.
David Wright has made the weekend squad after overcoming a back injury, whilst Sanchez Watt has rejoined training this week as he moves closer to a first team return - although Saturday's game will come too soon for the flying winger.
Ben will contest that right back berth with Tosin Olufemi, who has already occupied that position this season in Brian's absence.
U's boss Joe Dunne admitted that Ben could be in line to slot in at right back, with Brian Wilson set to miss the game against the Magpies after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season at Tranmere.
U's: Walker, Cousins, Okuonghae, Eastman, Tozer, Garbutt, Olufemi, Dickson, D. Wright, Eastmond, Bond, Gilbey, Sanderson, Vose, Turgott, Ibehre, Morrison, Bonne
The U's ran out 3-1 winners in their last home game and will be hoping to repeat that feat when the Magpies come to Colchester this weekend.
