Our prediction for this League 2 match:
The People’s Pension Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Crawley Town and Colchester United, the two mid-table sides. The Red Devils aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in the League Two, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Colchester. Despite failing to convert a penalty in the midweek defeat to Stevenage, Tom Nichols should keep his place up front, alongside Jordan Maguire-Drew.
The U’s, on the other hand, continue to struggle in the League Two, with the team eyeing their first league win since December 8, 2020. Considering that Crawley aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. Experienced attacker Frank Nouble, who opened his goalscoring account in a 2-2 draw with Mansfield, is widely expected to lead the line for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Lewis Young ):
Lewis Young is an experienced defender who plays for Crawley Town in the League Two. Young has a very interesting football career as he played for eight English clubs before joining Crawley Town.
The Watford product had an opportunity to play for the likes of Hereford United, Burton Albion, Forest Green, Northampton Town, Yeovil Town, Aldershot Town, and Bury, but he has never received a call-up for the England national team. Lewis Young wears the No. 2 shirt at Crawley Town’s primary position is right-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a right midfielder 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.
