Our prediction for this League 2 match:
High-flying Scunthorpe United will be looking to extend their winning run in the League Two to four games when they take on Colchester United at their Sands Venue Stadium on Saturday. The Iron aim to keep on climbing the standings, and we predict that they will leave their hearts on the field against the fellow promotion-chasing team. Seeing that the hosts are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Colchester United, we are positive that they are going to find the net on Matchday 21.
The U’s, on the other hand, recorded a very important 1-0 win over Salford City at the weekend to move a little closer to the play-offs berth. Since the visitors are likely to go for a win in the Sands Venue Stadium clash as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Adam Hammill):
Adam Hammill is an English footballer who plays for Barnsley in the Championship. Hammill was born on January 25, 1988 in Liverpool and he played for the Reds during his youth career (1995-2006). However, did not see any first-team football with the Anfield outfit as he was sent on loan to Dunfermline Athletic.
The pacey winger played for the likes of Southampton, Blackpool and Barnsley on loan as well and in 2009 he signed a permanent deal with the Tykes. After scoring 12 goals in 64 appearances in the league for Barnsley, Adam Hammill joined Wolverhampton Wanderers in the winter of 2011. Hammill played no more than 23 games for the Wolves (league) and in 2013 he signed a three-year contract with Hudersfield Town and he played for the Terriers from 2013 to 2015.
After spending the second half of the 2014/2015 season on loan at Rotherham United, he re-joined Barnsley on November 9, 2015 and he has been playing for the Championship club ever since. Adam Hammill is a winger, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well.
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.
