Picking the same XI that got Posh off to a winning start against Swindon on Saturday in their opening gameof the League One campaign would see big summer signing Jack Payne among the substitutes again.

Ferguson also left senior players Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Kane Ferdinand, Shaun Brisley and Joe Newell out of his squad altogether for the 1-0 victory over the Robins.

!I am not someone who tends to rotate players, particularly so early on in the season," Ferguson told reporters. "The players trained well on Monday and are feeling fit so there is no real reason to change the team based on fitness. I will field my strongest side at Colchester, I won't be leaving anyone out to give them a rest."
