Colchester to assess Ryan Jackson’s fitness ahead of Macclesfield clash

Colchester will check on defender Ryan Jackson ahead of the Sky Bet League Two match against Macclesfield.

The U’s have not been in action since the 1-0 win at Forest Green on November 27, when right-back Jackson was forced off because of a hamstring injury.

Defender Kane Vincent-Young has been carrying a groin problem, so will also be monitored as the promotion-hopefuls return to action following last weekend’s FA Cup schedule.

Leading scorer Luke Norris (ankle) continues his recovery, along with goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin (hamstring) and defender Tom Eastman (head).

New Macclesfield boss Sol Campbell takes charge of a first league match, after seeing his side beaten on penalties in their midweek Checkatrade Trophy tie against Newcastle Under-21s.

Midfielder Callum Evans should be involved again having recently made his return from an ankle problem.

Fit-again forward Jordan Ponticelli, on loan from Coventry, is another option for the former England defender following a metatarsal injury.

Defender Jared Hodgkiss (ankle) continues to be assessed after missing the past three fixtures.
