Colchester United duo Frankie Kent and Denny Johnstone have both been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Centre back Kent has ruptured ligaments in his ankle, while forward Johnstone has suffered a tear in his knee cartilage.

However there is better news concerning defender Tom Eastman who could be back in action before the end of the campaign.

Tom is having a series of Prolotherapy injections to heal the rupture in his ankle ligaments.

He had one earlier this week and will have another one or two depending on how the specialist thinks it's going.

An operation was an option for Tom and that would have meant him joining Frankie and Denny in being out all season.

This course of action has a shorter recovery time and gives us the chance to get Tom back for the last few weeks of the season.

Suspended Lawrence ruled out of East Anglian derby

In-form Ipswich Town winger Tom Lawrence has been ruled out of the upcoming East Anglian derby after picking up his 10th booking of the season against Brighton last night.

The Welshman has been in inspired form for Town recently, scoring eight goals since the turn of the year.

However, he is now facing a two-match suspension - meaning he'll sit out Saturday's home clash with Leeds United, and the trip to face Norwich City on February 26.

Leicester City loanee Lawrence helped Ipswich claim an impressive point at second-placed Brighton last night, setting up Luke Chambers' goal in a 1-1 draw.

Norwich City have been dealt a blow of their own ahead of the derby, with the news that striker Nélson Oliveira is facing 4-6 weeks out with a foot injury.
