Attacking midfielder to face Derby.
Colchester United midfielder Sammie Szmodics returns to action on Monday evening, as the U's take on Derby in the Premier League Cup at St George's Park.
Sammie has been out of action since before the turn of the year with a problematic ankle injury, but will be in the side to face the Rams in the Group C fixture.
There's no place for Lewis Kinsella, though, with the full back expected to travel to Grimsby on Tuesday night with the first team.
The U's squad also includes two triallists and Wayne Brown's men know that a win against County will be enough to progress to the knockout stages.
