Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Port Vale and Colchester United face each other at Vale Park on day 17 of the new League Two campaign. The Valiants did well to crush Bolton 6-3 at the weekend, with six different players finding the net. Port Vale are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Colchester, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play in Saturday’s clash.
The Valiants are on a three-game losing run at home ground, meaning that they are eager to put an end to the negative trend. Colchester United produce much better showings at home than on travels, but given their attacking potential, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. You should bear in mind that Port Vale recorded a 3-0 win over Colchester United in their last meeting in the English fourth tier.
