Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Globe Arena will host Tuesday’s League Two game between Morecambe and Leyton Orient. Morecambe quickly bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Newport, with the team beating Harrogate thanks to Wildig’s goal, and, no doubt, they are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Leyton Orient. The Shrimps produce much better showings at home than on the travels, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their third consecutive win at Globe Arena.
Leyton aim to build on a hard-fought 2-1 win over Newport where Danny Johnson scored his 11th goal of the season, but beating Morecambe on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. There have been under 2.5 goals in four of their previous five meetings in the English fourth tier. Defender Stephen Hendrie is back from suspension for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Liam O’Neil):
Born in Cambridge, England on July 31, 1993, Liam O’Neil is an English footballer who plays as both defender as midfielder for Cambridge United in the League Two. O’Neil is a product of the Cambridge United football school, but he played for Histon during his youth career as well.
In the summer of 2012 he joined WBA youth academy, and it has to be noted that he made three appearances for the Baggies at senior level in all competitions. Liam O’Neil played for the likes of VPS and Scunthorpe United on loan as well before joining Chesterfield in 2015.
After scoring two goals in 45 appearances for the club in the league, O’Neil moved to Cambridge United in the winter of 2017. As his mother comes from Wales, O’Neil is open to play for the Wales national team, but he has yet to earn a cap with the Dragons.
Highlighted Team (Colchester):
Founded in 1937, Colchester United are a professional football club that compete in the League Two, the English fourth tier. The U’s welcome their rivals at Colchester Community Stadium, the venue which has the capacity of 10,105 people.
Colchester United are well known for their blue kit, but white is the dominant colour of their away kit. The U’s have an official fans association known as the CUSA. Colchester supporters consider Wycombe Wanderers the club’s fiercest rivals, but the rivalries with Southend United and Ipswich Town are big as well. Colchester United did well to win the FA Trophy in the 1991/92 season, with the team clinching the Essex Senior Cup trophy in the 2009/10 season.
In December 1961 the U’s recorded their biggest win, with the team rolling over Bradford City 9-1 in the Fourth Division. Colchester United repeated the success 44 years later as they hammered Leamington 9-1 in the FA Cup round 1.
