Lee Evans, Dave Edwards and Leon Clarke were all handed recalls for the win at Bramall Lane in place of Jack Price, Bakary Sako and Nouha Dicko and could keep their place after being instrumental in a first win in three.
Colchester boss Joe Dunne could give Freddie Sears a first start in three games when they visit high-flying Wolves.
The former West Ham striker came off the bench last week, following his return from a hamstring injury, and could be rewarded with a return to the starting XI after he inspired a U's comeback from 2-0 down at Bristol City.
Dunne will have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the trip to Molineux but could could call upon the likes of Craig Eastmond, Macauley Bonne and Clinton Morrison should he decide to shuffle his pack.
Colchester have not won on the road in their last four and, with fixtures on the road at Notts County and Peterborough to come, Dunne's team will need to turn around that form if they are to edge further clear of the bottom four.
