Colchester United will welcome Doug Loft back into the squad for Tuesday's friendly against Ipswich, as they look to continue their positive pre-season record.
Doug has sat out the last two games with a tight calf as a precautionary measure, but will be in contention for a place in Tuesday's side.
Ryan Jackson also came through his return to action unscathed on Saturday and is in the squad for the midweek fixture.
And it will be the first chance for U's fans to see Mikael Mandron on home turf after his arrival at the back end of last week.
Head Coach John McGreal has two friendlies remaining to decide on his starting eleven for the season opener against Accrington Stanley and the games against Town and Gillingham will be a further measure of the team's readiness for the new campaign.
Tickets are available to both sets of supporters online at our www.colutickets.com website, and fans are advised to buy in advance to avoid any queues at the Ticket Office.
