Our prediction for this League 2 match:
In-form Colchester United will look to extend their winning run in League Two to four games when they take on Sutton at Colchester Community Stadium on Saturday. The U’s aim to keep on climbing the standings and they are surely capable of beating the rock-bottom side in front of home fans. Even though defender Connor Hall limped off with injury in the last league match, home win should be considered as Colchester have been in a splendid form of late. Tom Dallison is widely expected to replace Hall in the starting XI.
The visitors, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Bradford City and they managed to get one, but given their dreadful “James Bond” away record (0-0-7), we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Essex.
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.
