Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Crawley Town, Tranmere Rovers will look to climb to the playoffs berth when they host Colchester United to their Prenton Park. The Super Whites have been impressive at home ground of late, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive win in front of home fans, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
Veteran defender Peter Clarke, who scored a brace in the 2-1 win over Crawley, returns to the starting XI after he was rested in the EFL Trophy win over Salford City, as well as Calum MacDonald, who served his one-game ban against Forest Green. Colchester United, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to the Lions, and given their three-game winless run in the League Two, home win should be considered. You should bear in mind that Tranmere are undefeated in the previous eight meetings with Colchester.

The experienced footballer for several other English clubs as well, and, no doubt, Blackburn Rovers, Bournemouth, and Bolton Wanderers are the most notable ones.

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.
