Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Port Vale play host to Colchester United at their Vale Park in what is expected to be an entertaining League Two encounter. The Valiants have been impressive in front of home fans of late, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s clash. The U’s, on the other hand, are not enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in 19th place in the standings ahead of the trip to Vale Park.
Colchester United were beaten by Tranmere (0-2) in their last away game, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. When the two teams met at Colchester Community Stadium earlier in 2021 Port Vale defeated Colchester Thanks to Devante Rodney’s goal. The 23-year-old attacker returned to contention on Tuesday evening, and he is now pushing for a start.

Colchester supporters consider Wycombe Wanderers the club’s fiercest rivals, but the rivalries with Southend United and Ipswich Town are big as well.
