WITH no new injuries from Wednesday's game at Hillsborough, Town boss Paul Groves has a few decisions to make about the side to pit against Colchester at Blundell Park on Saturday.

Marcel Cas, Iain Anderson, Simon Ford and Darren Mansaram all returned from knocks and got a game under their belts during the penalty defeat at Hillsborough, and will all be pressing a claim for the starting XI against the Essex outfit who lie just above Town in the league.

Tony Crane was rested for the LDV Trophy game after limping off in Saturday's game against Brighton, but is expected to be fit to face The U's, and will probably replace Simon Ford.

Nicky Daws and Iffy Onuora will play their penultimate game for Town on Saturday, as both players' loans expire the following Tuesday after the Notts County game, although Paul Groves is keen to sign both men on a permanent basis.

Town assistant manager Graham Rodger was not dissatisfied with the performance at Hillsborough, despite's Town's exist from the competition. "It was a decent game and both sets of players wanted to win it. It's never easy to come here and get anything, a draw after 90 minutes was a good result," Rodger told Mariners Net.

"We've seen ten good penalties and the difference between winning and losing is a save by their goalkeeper's legs."

Colchester yesterday signed former Arsenal youth player Jermaine Brown on a month-long contract, and the striker is expected to feature in the Blundell Park game at some stage.

Town: (from) Davison, McDermott, Crane, Edwards, Barnard, Campbell, Hamilton, Daws, Anderson, Boulding, Onuora, Mansaram, Cas, Crowe, Ford, Young, Soames, Hockless, Jevons

Colchester (from) S Brown, Halford, Chilvers, Fitzgerald, Myers, Duguid, Pinault, Bowry, Vine, Keith, Fagan, J Brown, McGleish, Baldwin, Stockley, Andrews, Gerken, A White, Izzet, Fagan
