Colchester United assistant manager Mark Kinsella is hoping their League One status can be finally be confirmed on home soil at the weekend.
The U's are five points above the drop zone with two games left. A win over Shrewsbury Town on Saturday will secure their safety at the expense of Scunthorpe.
"It's in our own hands," said Kinsella, who attended the pre-match media briefing with manager Joe Dunne away for family reasons.
"We don't want to be going up to Carlisle next week looking to get something."
