Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Salford City and Colchester United take on each other at Peninsula Stadium in the League Two round 23. The Lions suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous three league fixtures. Salford City are undefeated at home ground in the 2020/21 League Two campaign, which is the main reason why bookies see Richie Wellens’ troops as hot favourites to win the midweek game.
Colchester United, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Scunthorpe. Since both Stevenson and Gerken are likely to miss Tuesday’s football match, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the Lions. Salford City have yet to defeat Colchester United in a competitive match, but we believe that the time has come for the Lions to put an end to the negative trend.
Highlighted Player (Richie Towell):
Richie Towell is a professional footballer who was born in Dublin, Ireland on July 17, 1991. After starting his youth career at Crumlin United, Towell was spotted by Celtic scouts in 2007, and he decided to join the famous Scottish outfit.
However, he made only one appearance for the Hoops at senior level, coming as a substitute for Jos Hooiveld in a 2-2 draw with Inverness in November 2010. Ritchie Towell played for the likes of Hibernian (loan), Dundalk, Brighton, and Rotherham United (loan) as well before signing a deal with his current club Salford City.
The Salford City midfielder has nine caps with the Republic of Ireland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up with the senior team. His primary position is central midfield, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. Richie Towell has two Irish Premier League trophies with Dundalk (2013, 2014).
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.
