Colchester United head into this game on the back of a 0-0 draw in their opening fixture of the season where Hayden Mullins’s men battled against Carlisle United in a game that featured the debuts of several new faces.
The U’s narrowly avoided relegation in 2020-21 by finishing in 20th place, and Mullins will be looking for a much stronger run in his first full season in charge of the club.
The Colchester boss took over as interim manager at the end of May and managed to help keep them in the Football League with an impressive run of form.
However, Colchester have not had the greatest preparation due to a difficult pre-season campaign which saw the team fail to pick up a single victory, with three draws and as many defeats.

Despite that, Colchester have a fond history in the EFL Cup and the club have proven themselves to be giant killers in the past, having reached the quarter-final during the 2019-20 tournament, knocking out Tottenham Hotspur along the way.
Colchester were also drawn against Championship opposition in the first round of the competition last season, in a game that Reading won 3-1 at the Madejski Stadium.
