Blues boss Paul Lambert, as well as his new backroom staff, will make the short trip down the A12 to watch the game at a sold-out JobServe Community Stadium.

Dozzell, who recently returned to action following a long-term knee injury, is set for only his second cap at this age level.

Downes, who has started both of Lambert’s first two games in charge, was added to the squad last week after initially being put on standby.

Fulham loanee Tayo Edun, who has found his chances limited of late, was also on standby for the squad.

There’s a further Town connection given Titus Bramble, the club’s Under-16 coach, was part of the camp at St George’s Park last week by special invite. His involvement follows on from a similar invite for Town U18 coach Kieron Dyer recently.

Earlier today, Lambert will watch Town’s U23s in action against Crystal Palace at Playford Road (1pm).

Town’s new first team coach Matt Gill, who was recruited directly from rivals Norwich City, said: “The club’s been renowned for bringing through young players and I’ve been really impressed. They’re all desperate to progress and learn, which is all you can ask.

“There’s so much talent, shown by the lads with England U20s this week and we’ll go over and see them at Colchester.

“From the oldest player to the youngest player, we’re here to help improve them all and hopefully the team as a result.”
