Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Colchester United play host to AFC Wimbledon at their Colchester Community Stadium in what is expected to be a close League Two encounter. The U’s aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Bradford City and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s encounter. The good news for the hosts is that talented forward Samson Tovide is back from suspension.
The Dons, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with newcomers Wrexham. Colchester and AFC Wimbledon seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, we predict that they are going to share the spoils on Matchday 3. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Essex. You should bear in mind that AFC Wimbledon defeated Colchester United 2-1 in their last encounter in the English fourth tier.
Highlighted Team (AFC Wimbledon):
Based in Kingston upon Thames, AFC Wimbledon are a professional football club that compete in the third tier of English football, commonly known as the League One.

AFC Wimbledon play their home games in blue shirts and blue shorts, whilst the colour of their away kit is yellow.
