Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Scunthorpe United and Colchester United take on each other at Sands Venue Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting League Two encounter. The Iron are stuck at the bottom of the table with only 24 points in their pocket, and, as things stand now, they will almost certainly drop to the National League. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but Joseph Nuttall could return to the starting XI.
The U’s, on the other hand, recorded a very important 1-0 win over Port Vale to move one step closer to securing the League Two survival. Colchester are more of a team than Scunthorpe, and we predict that the visitors will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Saturday afternoon. In the first half of the season the U’s defeated the Iron 2-1, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Harry Bunn):
Harry Bunn is a Manchester City product who played for the likes of Rochdale, Preston, Oldham Athletic, Crewe Alexandra, Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town on loan before signing a permanent deal with the Terriers in January, 2014. Bunn scored 15 goals in 91 appearances for Huddersfield Town before moving to Bury in a three-year contract in the summer of 2017.
The English attacker joined Bury as he was hungry for a first-team football. Harry Bunn, though, quickly changed the club as he joined Southend United on loan in August, 2018. After he impressed in the 2018/2019 season, the club chiefs decided to sign a permanent deal with Bunn. The Southend United forward was born in Oldham on November 21, 1992.
His main position is left winger, but he is capable of producing fine performances as attacking midfielder as well. The right-footed footballer has a contract with Southend United until June 30, 2020.
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.
