Colchester United will be without the young duo of Tyreik Wright and Armando Dobra for this weekend's game against Tranmere Rovers.
Along with Tommy Smith, both Wright and Dobra will be on international duty for their countries.
Wright has been named in the Ireland U21 squad, with an away game coming up against Sweden on Tuesday 29th March. The on-loan winger is no stranger to the Irish National set up after already picking up appearances in other age categories, and scoring for the U21 last year.
Dobra hasn't been involved in the U's squad much over the last few weeks, but the Ipswich Town loanee has been selected for Albania U21s' Euro Championship qualifying games against the Czech Republic and England on the 25th and 29th March respectively.
The U's skipper has been on duty with the New Zealand National side for the last seven days, as he looks to help the All Whites gain qualification to thhe 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Colchester United would like to with the trio the best of luck for their upcoming internatinoal fixtures.
