Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Colchester and Sutton square off against each other at Colchester Community Stadium in what is expected to be a close League Two game. The U’s have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s encounter. Since Colchester are seven points clear of the relegation zone, they should be happy with one point from the match. Teenage forward Samson Tovide is widely expected to return to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in a goalless draw with Crawley.
The visitors, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, and, as a result, they will not take part in the League Two playoffs. Sutton are eager to put an end to their four-match losing run, but we do not believe that they are capable of picking up more than one point from Saturday’s clash. Matt Gray has no fresh injury worries.
Highlighted Player (Kwesi Appiah ):
Born in Thamesmead, England on August 12, 1990, Kwesi Appiah is a professional footballer who plays for AFC Wimbledon in the League One. Due to his dual citizenship, Appiah is eligible to play for Ghana and he made his debut with the Black Stars in a 2-1 win over South Africa on January 27, 2015.
The pacey forward scored his first goal for the national team in a 3-0 win over Guinea on February 1, 2015. Appiah started his club career at Ebbsfleet United, but the list of clubs he played for is pretty long.
Appiah wore Peterborough United, Weymouth, King’s Lynn, Kettering Town, Brackley Town, Thurrock, Margate, Crystal Palace, Aldershot Town, Yeovil Town, Cambridge United, Notts County, Reading and Viking shirts before signing a permanent deal with AFC Wimbledon in 2017. His main position is centre-forward, but he is capable of producing fine performances as both second striker and left winger as well.
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.
