Colchester United’s quartet of summer signings are all expected to start their pre-season friendly against neighbours Ipswich Town tonight.

Sean Clohessy, Dan Holman, Ben Gordon and Chris Lewington are all set to feature from the start against Town at the Weston Homes Community Stadium (kick-off 7.30pm).

But Marcus Bean and Sanchez Watt (both knee) and Jabo Ibehre (groin) are not quite yet ready to return to match action for the U’s.
