Colchester United get their Checkatrade Trophy action underway on Tuesday night with the visit of Reading U21s in the first group game.
Fresh from a 5-1 win over Forest Green Rovers on Saturday, the U's will look to build on that with another victory ahead of a tough game at Cambridge United at the weekend.
After helping the U23s to a 2-0 win over Hull City on Monday, Charley Edge has been added to the squad that beat Forest Green.
The U's will also face Gillingham and Southend in this year's competition, and the two teams come face to face in Kent on Tuesday.
Tickets for the game can be bought HERE and fans are reminded that there is no shuttle bus service for the match, plus the Park & Ride car park is also not available on this occasion.
