Colchester United will check on the fitness of their left-back Ben Gordon today.

The former Chelsea youngster was substituted in the closing stages of the Walsall game with a rib injury, after being hit by the ball at point-blank range.

Gordon has been an ever-present for the U's this season following his arrival from Scottish Premier League side Ross County, this summer.
