Following a trio of away matches, Wayne Brown's side now face a triple header of home matches, with three in the coming week.
Starting with this weekend's game against Port Vale, the U's will look to build on their defensive strength shown over the last two matches, and go toe-to-toe with the side directly above them in the league table.
The Valiants moved above the U's after Tuesday's round of fixtures with a win at Vale Park against promotion-chasing, but only on goal difference with both sides on thity-eight points.
In the last game between United and Port Vale ended in a stalemate, with a 1-1 draw at Vale Park back in December, when Luke Norris was on target for his side.
The match at the JobServe Community Stadium this weekend will kick-off at 3:00pm, behind closed doors due to the current restrictions, but you can watch the full game live on iFollow, with commentary from BBC Essex.
