Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Scunthorpe United and Colchester United go head to head in a postponed game at Sands Venue Stadium. The Iron have been producing splendid displays in the League Two of late, with the team beating both Harrogate (5-2) and Leyton Orient (2-0) in the previous two league fixtures, and they must be high on confidence ahead of the midweek clash. The U’s, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 2-1 win over Grimsby Town.
Colchester United have been struggling on the travels in the 2020/21 season, and seeing that they have yet to record an away win this term, we are tempted to put our money on Scunthorpe United. Talented attacker Ryan Loft, who has found his goalscoring touch of late, will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the Iron, who have found their best form in December.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Clarke):
Jordan Clarke is a professional footballer who plays for League Two club Scunthorpe United. Born on November 19, 1991, Clarke is a product of the Coventry City football academy. He continued playing for the Sky Blues at senior level and after scoring 4 goals in 125 appearances for the club, he moved to Scunthorpe United in 2015.
It has to be noted that he had a short loan spell with Yeovil Town as well during the 2014/15 season. Jordan Clarke made his Scunthorpe debut in the League Two in a 2-0 loss to Swindon Town on August 3, 2019. Clarke’s main position is right-back, but he is used as both centre and left back as well.
Since he was a very talented player, Jordan Clarke earned call-ups for both England U19 and U20 teams. Speaking of his personal life, you should know that the Scunthorpe United defender attended Coundon Court School in Coundon, Coventry.
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.
