Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Whaddon Road pits together Cheltenham Town and Colchester United, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Cheltenham are eager to secure automatic promotion to the League One, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the U’s. The Robins picked up vital three points from the midweek clash against Stevenage, and seeing that Colchester have almost secure the League Two survival, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the promotion-chasing hosts.
You should know that Cheltenham Town are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home ground. Colchester United moved one step closer to securing the survival by beating Walsall and Southend, meaning that they have little to play for in the Whaddon Park showdown. You should bear in mind that the Robins are undefeated in the previous three meetings with the U’s.
Highlighted Player (Chriss Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
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.
