Our prediction for this League 2 match:
JobServe Community Stadium will host the League Two clash between Colchester United and Salford City, the two teams who sit in the middle of the standings ahead of Matchday 20. Since both sides are eyeing a place in the play-offs, a lively contest is on the cards, and we are positive that fans will see goals galore at JobServe Community Stadium.
Colchester United are eyeing their fifth home win of the season, and they are certainly capable of beating Salford City, who have been struggling to find their best form of late. The Lions have been producing much better showings on the road than at home of late, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s clash against the U’s. You should bear in mind that the two teams meet for the first time ever in the League Two.
Highlighted Team (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
