BRENNAN Dickenson has been named in Colchester United's squad for tonight's League Two clash at home to Coventry City.

The winger has been out of action since the end of April 2017, after rupturing his Anterior Cruciate Ligament.

However, the former Gillingham man is now on the brink of a return to first-team action after three successful outings for the under-23s.

Colchester will check on the fitness on Kurtis Guthrie, after the forward injured his ankle in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Carlisle United.
