Football - Eastmond sits it out

Colchester manager Joe Dunne will be without midfielder Craig Eastmond for the trip to Preston.

PA Sport Report

Eastmond picked up his fifth booking of the season in last weekend's 2-1 defeat by Swindon and serves a one-match ban. On-loan striker Elliot Lee, who started four games for the U's, has returned to West Ham.

Jabo Ibehre and Gavin Massey were second-half substitutes in that game and featured in a behind-closed-doors friendly in midweek, along with leading scorer Freddie Sears. They will be hoping they did enough to convince Dunne they are fit to face North End.

David Wright is also set to return from injury as the U's chase their fourth league victory of the season.
