COLCHESTER will be out for revenge after Wycombe earned the first bragging rights of the season on Tuesday night.

A penalty shoot-out win dumped the Us out of the Carling Cup but league points are up for grabs at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Colchester fans will surely remember the last time Wanderers played in Essex as Gareth Ainsworth handballed a last-minute equaliser and the Blues skipper may well get a frosty reception from the home crowd.

The Us kicked off their league campaign with an eye-catching 4-2 win at Preston and looked like a dangerous outfit at Adams Park on Tuesday night.

But Wycombe's form against their derby rivals away from home is decent.

In fact, they are unbeaten in their last four visits. So odds of 3/1 for a Wycombe win seem pretty generous.
